Young Architects 11
350 color illustrations, 20 b/w illustrations
Publication date: 5/1/2010
|Foresight is the eleventh in an annual series of publications that features the best young practicing architects as selected by the Architectural League of New York in their annual Young Architects competition. This year's theme, "Foresight," refers to an ability to survey, research, and engage the present toward particular, desired outcomes in the future. Our lives are inundated by forecasts about the world climate, the economy, sociopolitical trends, the housing market's rise and fall, and all kinds of bubbles bursting. Everyone has become an expert in predicting the future, just as the very idea of a better future has, for the first time in recent memory, come into question. The competition winners--Bureau E.A.S.T., Ether Ship, ex.studio, Fake Industries, Frida Escobedo Lopez, and Phu Hoang Office--present forward-thinking projects that imagine an effective role for architecture in the future.|
