Soliciting architects, designers, and artists of renown, as well as emerging talents, from all over the world, Maxamilian Godlfarb and Matt Bua have edited a collection that reveals an array of works that convey alternatives, byproducts, expansions, or critiques of our inhabited environments.From abstract and conceptual visual interpretations of structures to more traditional architectural renderings, the featured work is divided into thematic chapters, ranging from Adapt/Reuse to Clandestine, Mobile, Radical Lifestyle, Techno-Sustainable, and Worship. Along with arresting and inspiring illustrated content, every chapter also features an essay exploring its respective themes. Highlighting visions that exist outside of established channels of production and conventions of design, Speculative Structures showcases a multiplicity in concept and vision, fantasy and innovation.
