| The series of critical discourse on architecture begins a tenth round

SOM – Journal 10 is the latest in a series of volumes presenting, from a critical perspective, the projects from the architectural offices of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. As in the previous installments, an elected jury of experts in the fields of architecture and criticism review the projects, not only to examine their architecture and structural concepts, but also their sociocultural and historical references and impacts, to narrow in on a selection of finalists. The architectural firm is already a story in itself: founded more than eighty years ago, it has erected more than ten thousand buildings around the world. From this perspective, this compendium focuses on how a large architectural firm confronts questions of ethos and legacy when thinking about design.Projects featured (selection): Al Ahmadi Cultural Center, Al Ahmadi, Kuwait; Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Terminal 2, Mumbai, India; Denver Union Station, Denver, Colorado; The University Center at The New School, New York; Shenzhen Rural Commercial Bank Headquarters, Shenzhen, China
