Contemporary Architecture – The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings

Today I was thrilled in a way that it was time that I emocionava when it comes to architecture, perhaps because of this that I gained from the publisher Alaúde and that made me reflect on the role of the ArquiDicas, about the reasons that led me to the exit of the faculty of architecture with a goal: to build a web site to talk with people about architecture.

Contemporary Architecture – The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings

Not with the architects, perhaps with young people who aspire to study architecture, but mostly with people, people like you who may be reading this article right now to learn more about the future of architecture.

I think that was a super gift – thank you to the publisher Alaúde – and let me explain why this little book made that much of a difference as well in my day.

First because it is not an architecture book either, it is a special TED, who does not know the TED, I recommend that after reading this text and watch the video go to the TED website and start venturing out in the millions of ideas and stories about different subjects.

Stories that inspire us, that cause us to redeem your faith in humanity, showing us innovative ideas with the capacity to transform society.

Whenever I’m bored I’ll jump on the TED website, and I turn into a different person, more motivated, it is amazing the power of those talks, to lift our spirit, and I do not watch only the TED’s about architecture, I watch about everything, so many minds of genius, both scientific and social which is an injection of creativity in the brain.

Good, then this book gathers 100 examples of buildings that represent the future of architecture, a selection made by the architect Marc Kushner who founded the architecture firm HWKN and also on the website Architetizer.com.

I confess that it had not yet seen the TED talk from Marc, then as I got the book of this and loved it, I decided to watch the video to see what this architect was so special to be invited to a talk on TED.

For only brilliant people, outstanding and fantastic are invited to speak at TED.

So I watched the video with the title: Why the buildings of the future will be shaped by … you-or something like this: Because the buildings of the future will be shaped by … you.

In which he talks about the relationship between society and architecture and how this relationship has transformed in recent years and what is expected of contemporary architecture for the coming years.

And this video touched me, reminded me of why I created the ArquiDicas and because it is made for people who are not architects.

Good video is spectacular so I’m going to attach it here for you to watch and then tell you what he found there in the comments.

The Architecture of the Future – Video

The Book: The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings

Good, this talk is fantastic for the TED resulted in a small book and filled with great examples of contemporary architecture that is called: The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings, a partnership with the TED with the publisher, Lute.

It is a small book, nice to read and with an affordable price, I searched and the value of it is approximately fifty real, a good gift year-end for the architects and non-architects.

A book divided in chapters that show:

  • Architecture in extreme locations;
  • The architecture that reused the old spaces and give them new uses (Reivenção);
  • The architecture that influence the health and well-being of the people (Improvements);
  • The temporary architecture, called Sop ups;
  • The new form of architecture and its relationship with the surroundings (Chameleons);
  • The architecture that relates to the nature (Natural Building);
  • Architecture as shelter and protection in respect of climate change and natural disasters (Shelter in the Storm);
  • Compact architecture (Shrink);
  • The social architecture that provide the encounter and the relationship between the individuals of the society , that improve the lives of people (Catalysts for Social);
  • The future of construction, architecture, printed in 3D, new materials, new building techniques (Fast Forward).

These are the chapters that discuss the various types of construction: residential, commercial, institutional, entrepreneurial, etc. In projects large and small, with different materials and the proposed architectural.

The contemporary architecture that is being built in different parts of the world.

The book also invites the reader to watch the other lectures of TED related to the theme of contemporary architecture, architects: Michael Green; Thomas Heatherwick; Alastair Parvin and architect Danish Bjarke Ingels.

For those interested by the book I’ll leave a link with the most affordable that I found and is a great indication for those who already is an architect, is studying architecture or interested in the subject, since it brings a number of references in the architectural important that will shape the futuristic architecture, including the images used in this post are a small sampling of the references found in this book.

The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings. Kushner, Marc. Editora Alaúde.

If you have not watched the video I recommend to watch, if not is with time to save and see later, but don’t stop to watch because it treats a serious discussion that is architecture’s relationship with society and how the new architects will convince your clients to accept your proposals architectural innovative leaving aside the old references of classical architecture greco-roman.

To finalize this text has as its main theme the contemporary architecture, I would like to say that in the video the architect talks about the time that americans spend in buildings, 90% of your day, he says that the architecture in the permeates and influences our feelings and even our health, but let’s think of architecture more broadly.

After all, for us brazilians the architecture is studied in a triad that involves architecture, urban planning and landscaping, that is, if we consider this, we do not spend 90% of our time involved by the architecture, we pass 100%, because even outside of the buildings, the architecture communicates with people through the landscape and of the relationships urban, and more causes people to communicate and interact with each other, providing the meeting.

And to me the whole architecture has value, from the interior architecture, the building, the landscaping to the urban planning, because if we analyze in a simple way, all the architecture plan environments for people, thinking in movement, in the uses, in setorizações and in the relationship between the spaces, from small scale domestic to large scale when planning cities, states and nations.

This is how I see the architecture, as the possibility of creating connections between people and emotional connections the individual and the collective.

A big hug, I hope you have enjoyed these tips of the book and the video, I know that the text was a little bit personal today, but I want me to connect :p!
