Selected concepts from 2016 include ‘Architecture for Refugees,’ ‘Bringing Back the Social into the Cities,’ ‘Curating Heritage in Future’ and ‘Ruincarnations.’ Future Architecture welcomes ideas that hold the future in mind, whether in response to current living environments or in anticipation of new ones. Projects celebrated in last year’s program can be viewed on the website’s ‘Ideas’ catalogue, along with current proposals, which can also be explored and voted on by the public.
