is premised on its companion 10 years 100 artists - art in a democratic South Africa (Bell-Roberts/Struik, 2004) in which ten art critics each nominated ten artists for inclusion. It differs insofar as all architectural practitioners were invited via the South African Institute of Architects to submit work for consideration. Given the determining influence of bio-climatic factors on architectural expression, the submissions were grouped into six geographic regions. Esteemed academics from those regions were called upon to review the projects worthy of inclusion. Based on their recommendations, the book documents the most influential projects since South Africa's transition to democracy and includes work in the public, institutional, educational, health-care and residential domains.

The 450-page book is fully illustrated, consists of 8 introductory articles, a conclusion and 100+ scholarly citations on each of the submissions. Every citation is accompanied by biographic data of the design and construction teams, as well as a bibliographic synopsis."
