Second volume is dedicated to reviewing the most recent work of architect Mendes da Rocha (b. Brazil 1928), 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize winner and characteristic for his bold use of concrete and steel in his innovative architectural designs constructed in his native São Paulo. This fine edition establishes a form of continuity with an earlier edition, maintaining the architect's own vision of his work while avoiding structuring the volume into thematic chapters.
