Architecture and Innovation is an edited (multi-authored) book focusing on the new trends and frontiers in architecture. Architecture renews itself in terms of structural, aesthetical, and functional aspects that correspond to the needs of every age. Unlike artistic creativity, innovation in an architectural sense has to be evaluated differently as an object of use in social life. The innovation might include technical, design, manufacturing, management, and commercial aspects related to presenting a new (or improved) product. In other words, innovation, as a novel idea bringing an added-value, is an enterprise tool, in which change is used as an opportunity. Originality, on the other hand, the quality of being special and not the same as anything else, opens up a a discussion of how an original architectural move relates to the context, history, and cultural background. Original and/or innovative, new social demands and new technological apparatus challenges architecture every moment by calling out the creativity of the designer.

Within that scope, the concepts of innovation, originality, and creativity will be brought into focus. The research and new technologies in architecture will also be put on the agenda. Furthermore, not only the 21st century but also the new approaches in history will be brought into the spotlight. Case studies, new research results, and theoretical works are welcomed.
