Visionary Architecture: Unbuilt Works of the Imagination

 
9780070089945: Visionary Architecture: Unbuilt Works of the Imagination

A panoramic exploration of works of the imagination throughout history. Its emphasis is on how each architect, renderer, artist, and culture envisioned the future, hence the preponderance of buildings and urban cityscapes depicted are "unbuilt". A range of work is included, from baroque stage sets to the film "Metropolis", M.C. Escher, Frank Lloyd Wright, Hugh Ferriss, virtual L.A., and more. There are sketches, paintings, models, drawings, and computer images in a range of media and stylistic techniques, and a timeline integrates architectural events alongside their historical and cultural counterparts.
