This book is the first part of a three-volume field guide to the future of architecture. The collection maps contemporary architectural practice and urban planning, presented through the words and ideas of some of its key players and change-makers. From institutions, activists, thinkers, curators and architects to urban bloggers, polemicists, critics and publishers, Archifutures presents the people shaping tomorrow’s architecture and cities – and thereby helping to shape our societies of the future as well.
The Future Architecture platform, opened in 2015, is the first pan-European platform of architecture museums, festivals and producers, bringing ideas on the future of cities and architecture closer to the wider public, conceived and coordinated by the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), Ljubljana, Slovenia. The platform supports emerging creatives and helps them develop their artistic potential in an international context by enabling them to present their work in the framework of a Europe-wide program of exhibitions, conferences, lectures and workshops, books and on-line repositories involving 18 organisers from 15 countries.
