A fully-fledged Skira Architecture house organ which presents the Skira's point of view on world architecture.

The Yearbook includes: Wall paper: a number of double-page spreads featuring about a hundred of the most interesting projects built or designed during the year.
Editorial: an essay with a systematic presentation of all news items, problems and key characters.
Projects: a selection of 25/30 projects, themes, outstanding people or towns which have displayed significant content or results over the year.
Each project is sumptuously illustrated and includes a critique by a well-known figure or an interview with the designers.
Tools: Index of the Index: a selection of the world's top architectural journals' annual indexes; of international exhibitions and events; of interesting websites; details about the designers and the institutions mentioned.
