Meeting the challenges posed by an increasing global population and the impact that this has on the natural environment and resources, requires creativity and vision; balancing ecology with technology and competing needs is the architecture of the future.
Futuristic presents designs by more than forty architectural firms, all of them as impressive as they are surprising, their work organized into 'Urban', 'Towers', 'Atmosphere', 'Green', 'Water', and 'Bionics'. The visionary potential of this volume offers a positive message, that sustainability is achievable, that it looks and feels good, that with the right skill it is possible to achieve the impossible and create the tangible utopias of tomorrow....today!
Text in English and German.
