Architects across the world work against a backdrop of rapidly growing cities, changing climate, and emerging economies. But while Western architecture has largely dominated the discourse, architecture firms from non-Western countries have been establishing local/global recognition for themselves.

This title journeys across Asia, Africa, and the Americas to understand how local architects respond to a changing world, focusing its wide lens on inspiring and truly global architecture. These architects often find strikingly different solutions to local requirements, including sustainability, transportation and migration, construction materials, and traditions.
