NEW – A voyage through an architectural ecosystem of the future
Architecture is the art and science of creating and recreating our world. Our lives and vast ecosystems we live in are constantly evolving. Our buildings should accommodate the changing contemporary landscape and evolve with us. Architecture is not defined, it is up to us to shape how it changes our lives and whether it is destructive or evolutionary. Each new project has the opportunity to create ripples that change the world for the better.
“NEW” takes a voyage through an architectural ecosystem of projects under construction and still on the boards about new ideas and approaches to the way we live. From residential projects that self-generate electricity for entire communities, skyscrapers that change the way we understand sustainable city life, to vast Middle Eastern Arabic campuses that adapt to harsh desert conditions, and so much more. The aim is to inspire everyone to think beyond our current definitions and limitations; it is to inspire us to constantly experiment, explore, and evolve. Because everyone can create life changing communities. Design is about giving the world something NEW, something it didn’t have when it began.
