Future Systems is an architectural and design practice, established in 1979, who have surprised the architectural world with their daring forms and inventive design philosophy that merges modern ideas with natural shapes and technological innovations from other fields. After establishing themselves with creative projects and architectural competitions (2nd Place, International Competition, Bibliotheque de France, Paris, 1989) they soon obtained wider recognition with the Lord's Cricket Ground Media Centre (1994). They went on to gain other important commissions from fashion names like Comme des Garcons (1998) and Marni (1999) and today are celebrated for their new flagship store for Selfridges in Birmingham (2003) (featured on more than fifteen magazine covers). This book presents a selection of work from the last twenty-five years, some previously unpublished. It celebrates the finished accomplishments for which Future Systems are recognized today, as well as looking at more recent proposals and concepts that continue their forward-looking philosophy, such as the Maserati Museum, Modena (2004). Organized according to themes such as objects, houses, shopping and landmarks, this innovative format will also present well-known works in a new light, permitting a fresh appreciation of Future Systems' oeuvre today, at their highest point of public acclaim.
