With a name and logo like Autoban, you’d be forgiven for thinking that one of the world’s hottest design teams comes from some uber cool German city when in fact they hail from the uniquely exotic/chaotic city of Istanbul. Now in their eleventh year designers Özdemir and Çağla’s work just like their name (the Turkish word for motorway is Otoban) reflects their home city’s knack for blending the best of Eastern and Western styles together. This book presents an impressive selection of Autoban’s projects in both photo and plan form including a plethora of super chic hotels, apartments, offices and shops from around the world. Autoban,the perfect balance of cool European attitude and heady Asian excitement, a bit like belly-dancing to Kraftwerk. Buy it HERE.
