The future of architecture
“The future of architecture” is an attempt to supply an insight into the question, “What is the future of architecture?”.
Every architectural attempt starts by making a representation of an imaginative situation or design, which will happen, or could happen in the future. In many cases an architectural design remains a future plan, and in times of economical and political crisis, the question of what comes next, gains relevance. So, while architects shape the future, this book is concerning about the future of architecture.
Over the past few months we have asked this question trough an open call on our project website www.the-future-of.org. These answers, together with a selection of invited architectural offices, artists and theorists, such as Marjetica Potrc, 2012 architecten, Aristide Antonas, Rotor, Observatorium, Whale Architects, Intrastructures and many more, form a fragmented map of thoughts. Putting together the pieces of this map, and trough critical reading, we might find some answers into dealing with architecture tomorrow.
