Inspired by the very real challenges that are facing our civilization today, a new generation of architects are envisioning a future in which architecture exists in a symbiotic relationship with nature. The works profiled in this book come from all over the world, from established studios and from up-and-coming young architects. There are innovative and avant-garde proposals, unexpected points of view, and concepts that will doubtless influence the construction of a sustainable future. Bursting with inspirational ideas, this is an unmissable volume for practicing architects, designers, students and the visionaries of tomorrow.
