Radical Architecture of the Future

Phaidon

How the work of contemporary architecture practices covers far more than the design and construction of buildings – an important and thought-provoking collection of original projects by unique thinkers in the world of architecture and spatial design, such as Diller + Scofidio, David Adjaye, and Ensamble Studio.

Architectural practice today goes far beyond the design and construction of buildings – the most exciting, forward-thinking architecture is also found in digital landscapes, art, apps, films, installations, and virtual reality. This remarkable book features projects – surprising, beautiful, outrageous, and sometimes even frightening - that break rules and shatter boundaries. In this timely book, the work of award-winning architects, designers, artists, photographers, writers, filmmakers, and researchers – all of whom synthesize and reflect our spatial environments – comes together for the first time.

Radical Architecture of the Future's featured architects include Diller Scofidio + Renfro, David Adjaye, SANAA, Amateur Architecture Studio, and Ensamble Studio. Artists, designers, filmmakers, and writers covered include Julie Mehretu, Wolfgang Tillmans, and John Gerrard.
