‘There was a time when it seemed like blueprints, dreams, and raw concrete could change the world: on the age of utopian architecture and why we need it more than ever’

Foreword by Robert Klanten in this beautiful book which is a joy to possess, each page with images and detail capturing  the optimism of a time when architects wanted to ‘build utopia.’ Featuring, Buckminster Fuller, Brasilia, Louis Kahn, Lina Bo Bardi, Herb Greene, Firestone Baars Chapel and so many more.

Robert continues; ‘We thought we could cast our vision of a better world in raw concrete and sweeping glass and cantilever it over the edge of our flawed present, over the chasm of our human failings, and into the open, untouched air of an ideal future – and then we live there, all of us. For thirty years or so, in the heart of the twentieth century, it felt like architecture might save the world’.

Nevermore apt than now Robert Klanten poses the question ‘what happened to the future?’
