Phaidon has launched a new book looking at innovative and forward-thinking architecture from around the world. Titled Radical Architecture of the Future, the hardback book has been researched and written by Beatrice Galilee, founder and executive director of The World Around and previously Associate Curated of Architecture and Design at the Metropolitan Museum.

The book looks at a variety of architectural projects, spanning everything from apps, films, installations, virtual reality and game design to give an interdisciplinary look at spacial design. The book is categorized into five chapters, covering “Visionaries,” “Insiders,” “Radicals,” “Breakthroughs” and “Masterminds.”

Stand-out projects include a Copenhagen power plant designed by BIG that doubles as a ski-slope and public park, Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s opera held on the New York High Line and a philosophical video game launched by David O’Reilly. Elsewhere, the book takes a look at buildings and projects that explore erased cultural identity, the remains of Luis Barragán and civil rights.

Launching the project, Beatrice Galilee said, “This book was inspired by the practitioners themselves. There is currently such a vivid, rich and pluralistic landscape out there where the next generation of architects and designers can flourish, change, expand and grow. I hope readers will feel encouraged by the ideas and visions we are sharing, and feel that perhaps the future is in good hands.”

Radical Architecture of the Future is available now from the Phaidon web store.

For more books, Dutch duo Arturo Bamboo recently released the new RED MOON publication.
