Reflecting Histories and Directing Futures
Edited book, 2019

This anthology is the proceedings publication from the 2017 NAF Symposium "Reflecting Histories and Directing Futures”.

The book discusses how the concept of the future has been expressed and understood in and by architecture in recent history, and in what way this understanding has shaped architectural discourse. It reflects on the agency of architecture and the visions and histories of different design cultures and their hegemony in society.
