More Description

An indispensable and innovative resource for anyone involved in contemporary architecture and urban development.
Cities are the ultimate and most complex manifestations of human civilization. For millennia, architects and builders have attempted to rationalize them into well-functioning and livable places for their inhabitants. While many aspects of a city evolve naturally, other facets result from masterful human interventions and radical imagination. "Future City" celebrates the visionary urban plans that have preoccupied architects trying to create a better world from the 1950s to the present.
The book features hundreds of seminal and influential works by some sixty architects, ranging from the groundbreaking experiments of Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Peter Cook, and Daniel Libeskind to a new generation of rising stars, including Asymptote, NOX, UN Studio, and Greg Lynn. 500+ illustrations.
