Description:
Gazing into a crystal ball in 1971—twenty-nine years ahead of the millennium—architectural thinker Charles Jencks published a provocative entry in Praeger’s Books that Matter series. Applying methods of forecasting developed in the scientific disciplines, Architecture 2000 explores predictions taken both from architectural forecasters and those in related fields. Biology is predicted to be the major metaphor at work in the 1980s and 1990s producing the most significant architectural movement of the century. In a brilliant final section, Jencks attacks architectural determinists for their fatalism, arguing that we need not accept negative consequences from past architectural decisions as inevitable. Fans of Archigram and other forward thinking movements, this is your book.
