Book Summary
Part of the TED Series: The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings A pavilion made from paper. An inflatable concert hall. A building that eats smog. A bridge that grows grapes. The Future of Archi-tecture in 100 Buildings captures the soaring confidence, the thoughtful intelligence, the futuristic wonder and at times the sheer whimsy of the world's most inspired and future-looking buildings. As author Marc Kushner explains, 'The future of archi-tecture is not one of any dominant style but rather a world of con-stant innovation and experimentation.' Like an architectural cabi-net of wonders, the book captures this glorious global diversity. From soaring steel towers to bamboo bungalows, from iconic monuments to ingenious children's playgrounds, each page offers an unexpected glimpse of architecture's potential.
