Strike a Pose

Eccentric Architecture and Spectacular Spaces
Posted by Gestalten—12/2008

Strike a Pose documents a new extroverted architectural language. Manifested in spectacular structures, eccentric forms and vivid colours, this expressive approach goes way beyond conventional stylistic and geographic boundaries. The book leads the reader around the globe to iconographically charged scenes and futuristic spaces, with examples of architectural playfulness and experimental wanderlust ranging from private residences to schools and operas, museums and interior design. In our latest podcast Strike a Pose Editor Lukas Feireiss comments on this publication which inspires beyond the traditional borders of genre, further indicating architecture's pop appeal and its contagious and entertaining effect.
