Zukunft von gestern – Visionäre Entwürfe von Future Systems und Archigram
Yesterday's Future - Visionary designs by Future Systems and Archigram

Peter Cachola Schmal, Philipp Sturm.

Illustrated with numerous drawings, collages and models,  this book examines the utopian vision of the offices Archigram and Future Systems. While Archigram conceived organic architectures to ensure survival in inhospitable environments, the designs by Future Systems are intended for use in more friendly climes. Although the majority of these utopian designs were never realized, their plans offer a fascinating look at how architects prepare for a world they can only imagine.
