About the Media Architecture Catalog

This is a compendium of outstanding projects that define the state of the art of built Media Architectures.

The collection is based on project submissions for the Media Architecture Biennale Awards and on research by the Media Architecture Institute. The compendium features extensive descriptions and stunning photos and videos, that give a vivid impression of the architectural and artistic impact of the projects.
