DIE WELT VON MORGEN
Visionen vom Leben in der Zukunft
The world is changing rapidly, and the impact is felt especially in the space we live in - both positively and negatively. Globalization, population growth and climate change are cause for anxiety. The responses of politicians are half-hearted compromises, and many changes are already irreversible. But a quite different profession is reacting faster, more cogently and with greater courage to the challenges: the architects of the future. They are evolving impressive visions, seeking innovative solutions, and providing sources of hope for the world of tomorrow. Their experimental designs confront the ongoing challenges and consider the options for technological development from a variety of angles.
