Design will play an ever increasing role on every aspect of our future. From our DNA to the cosmos, from our planet to our desks, our futures will be mapped by the objects we use and the people who build them. This book explores the forking paths of future development, taking in corporate products backed by millions in venture capital to alternative bottom-up strategies dreamed up by individuals working in small groups The Future Starts Here examines the cutting edge of technology and how it shapes our everyday lives. Looking at real objects being developed today – including a UAV by Facebook designed to beam the internet down from space, to a robot developed by UC Berkeley which will do the laundry – expert authors show how design and technology impact every level of life, from sub-microscopic aspects of the human body to the entire planet. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, it asks how we can use technology to shape the future of our world. The staggering developments featured here are all happening now, it is up to us to ensure they create a future for us all

Together! The New Architecture of the Collective

£45.00

Quantity
The last decade has seen a growing social movement towards collectivity, sharing and participation. This paradigm shift is reflected in architecture as well: In recent years, increasingly innovative collective housing projects, organised around the principle of trading in private spaces for larger, more luxurious shared spaces, have been emerging across the globe - many of them realised through bottom-up grassroots initiatives The return of the collective in architecture has resulted in surprising architectural solutions that also create new urban spaces. Together! The New Architecture of the Collective presents around twenty international building projects from Europe Japan, and the US that provide innovative platforms for collective living in the present day. A selection of projects are discussed in detail, and extensive photo essays offer rich and vivid impressions of the daily collective and private lie and everyday routines in these buildings Interviews with movers and shakers from the collective housing scene, written by international journalists, offer insights and background information on the processes and people that have made each project possible. All that is complemented by theoretical and historical context, including analytical essays by experts in the field, info graphics providing facts and figures, diagrams explaining how different collective housing models work, and an extensive timeline detailing genealogy of the collective housing movement in the twentieth century

Why Materials Matter: Responsible Design for a Better World

Why Materials Matter: Responsible Design for a Better World

£39.99

Quantity
What does it mean to live in a material world, and how do materials of the past and present hold the keys to our future? Why Materials Matter tackles these questions by focusing on various issues that human beings face and by discussing potential materials-related solutions Through the lens of intriguing projects by designers, artists, makers, and scientists, it presents a colourful panoply of ideas, technologies, and creative efforts that focus on the earth's most basic elements, while also showing how these elements can be transformed into entirely new materials. It explores, for example, how ancient practices such as dyeing fabric and making glue may hold the secret to renewable and earth-friendly consumer products, as well as how recycling plastics can tackle food waste, and how a type of light metal being developed may one day make air travel less fuel-reliant This book also investigates the potential of the digital experience, suggesting how this most ephemeral type of matter can be used to improve our world Eye-catching and provocative, Why Materials Matter serves as both a stimulating catalogue of possibilities and a timely manifesto on how to consume, manufacture, and design for a better future

£25.99

Work, Body, Leisure explores the spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labour, its ethos, and its conditions The Netherlands has been and continues to be a testing ground where the future of labour is re-imagined. Published in conjunction with the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Work, Body, Leisure analyses spatial arrangements and protocols moulded for the interaction between humans and machines, spaces that challenge traditional distinctions between work and leisure, the ways in which evolving notions of labour have categorised and defined bodies, and the legal, cultural, and technical infrastructures that enable their exploitation, with the aim of fostering new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field in response to emerging technologies of automation.
