The focus of this book is the latest architecture and design of restaurants and bars. Whether the challenge is merely placing furniture in a simple space, or an ambitious structural project, restaurants and bars are the sites of our most expressive architecture; more ephemeral than larger facilities or entire buildings, they are more apt to capture the mood of the times.

From a skyscraper rooftop in Bangkok to a beachfront in Brazil, here are places where design, architecture, food and drink come together in inspiring combinations ranging from minimalist to extravagantly baroque.

This book identifies the trends that are bringing architecture and design together in restaurants and bars.

Featuring restaurants and bars by Wonderwall/ Masamichi Katayama, Marcel Wanders, Philipe Starck, Christina Liaigre, Kengo Kuma,Doriana & Massimiliano Fuksas, Karim Rashid, Arne Quinze along with a private members bar by Zaha Hadid to name just a few of the architects work that is featured here.
