Future systems for living with nature
The architect Jan Kaplicky reached the recognition of his Future Systems and their visionary architectural, design and urban concepts only within the past decade. Their aesthetics, inspired by the latest air- and space technology and materials, has influenced the architectural form of the late 20th century. Future Systems have been dealing with dwelling in various media (earth, air, water, space) and developing ideas about reshaping the city centres through their radical urbanism. The numerous flexible and mobile designs have proved to be astonishingly advanced through their ecologic and economic efficiency.
