Overview

Born out of the drawingbuilding.org online archive, Architectural Inventions presents a stunning visual study of impossible or speculative structures that exist only on paper. Soliciting the work of architects, designers, and artists of renown—as well as emerging talents from all over the world—Maximilian Goldfarb and Matt Bua have gathered an array of works that convey architectural alternatives, by products, expansions, or critiques of our inhabited environments. Highlighting visions that exist outside of established channels of production and conventions of design, Architectural Inventions showcases a multiplicity in concept and vision, fantasy and innovation.
