About this title

Synopsis:

Future Systems, led by Jan Kaplicky and Amanda Levete, is one of the UK's most innovative and influential architectural practices. Known internationally, their name is synonymous with pioneering and technologically creative design. Their work first made an impact through the powerful imagery of its unbuilt work, which reached an international zenith with the second-placed scheme for the French National Library in 1989. Their built work of the 1990s has attracted media acclaim and public interest, and their exhibition at London's Institute for Contemporary Arts in 1998 attracted unprecedented numbers for an architectural show. Future Systems' interests extend well beyond those of more conventional architecture practices. Jan Kaplicky has designed this unique and vibrant book, which explores their design philosophy and illustrates their wide influences. Author Marcus Field traces the continuing development of Future Systems' work and examines over 30 recent projects, including the Hauer-King House, London, the Media Centre at Lords Cricket Ground and Comme des Garcons shops in New York, Paris and Tokyo. The book also contains a glossary of projects from 1958-92, including designs for products and furniture.
