As Sanford Kwinter once said, "Concepts are the architecture of hope." Inthe modern world, conceptual architecture has only become possible due tomodern man's increasing tendency towards individualisation. Concepts, incontrast to theories, do not demand absoluteness or intellectual consensus,but rather allow for a playful and singular approach to designing andbuilding. The works featured in Conceptual Architecture possess sensual andatmospheric qualities that can be attributed to a delicate handling ofmaterials and details. Unlike much conceptual architecture, most of theprojects in this book have been realized, a testament to the advances inconstruction techniques and materials that have enabled these high-conceptprojects to come to fruition. The book is divided into seven sections:Public, Residential, Corporate, Educational, Mixed-use, Religious andBusiness.
