What will the cities of tomorrow look like? What shape will future landscapes take? What new visions will overthrow the blob-like buildings that are so common, and commonplace, in modern architecture? This hefty tome tries to suggest some the answers by presenting contemporary buildings designed with an eye towards the future. Intended for work, play, residence and business, these structures can be found in the city and in open landscapes. Cutting-edge studios, such as Niemeyer, Archigram, Frank Gehry, Fuksas, Shigeru Ban, Herzog & De Meuron and FOA, all leaders in the field of architecture, have contributed to this forward-looking volume.
