Technology-Driven Design Approaches to Utopia

Technology-Driven Design Approaches to Utopia

By Marios C. Phocas

Publisher: Edition Axel Menges

Imprint: Edition Axel Menges

Together with his colleagues and students at the University of Cyprus, Phocas challenges traditional definitions of utopia by presenting us with analytical research and clearly delineated visions of some architectural futures, which defy easy description. Projects should be appreciated as a continuing creative search for the defining of what is the meaning in our 21st-century world of “uto-pia” and the role of architectural technology in expressing it. Some of the projects propose new “building blocks”, others can be likened to the self-generating growth and re-newal process of plant life or appear as in natural growth. And yet other proposals are developed as independent systems that are more autonomous in their form and function.
