Hatch: The New Architectural Generation, by Kieran Long

Mar 31, 2009
  • Article by Online Editor

The dustcover of Hatch makes for some bold claims, promising us that its contents represent a showcase of “114 architects who will define the physical fabric of our cities for the next 30 years as well as the theoretical and interpretive background of architectural practice worldwide.” Surprisingly, if the work presented here is anything to go by, the claim is perhaps only a fractional an overstatement. Kieran Long, editor of the UK’s Architects Journal, has compiled a suitably eclectic mix of the “new generation” here, offering 114 appetite-whetting vignettes covering architectural practitioners, theoreticians, photographers, furniture designers, artists and writers – with not a few surprise entries along the way.
