SHIFTS: Architecture After the 20th Century
Edited by Hans Ibelings and Powerhouse Company
Published by The Architecture Observer
The global crisis that erupted in 2008 has left unmistakably deep scars in architectural culture. But what is happening now is not solely attributable to what began as a mortgage crisis; many of the causes lie deeper, and go back further than a few years. In a way, the recession has simply accelerated, and exacerbated, various pre-existing trends. Without overstating the case, the West, and above all Europe, is undergoing such major change at the beginning of the twenty-first century that is no longer logical to expect the future to be simply on extrapolation and continuation of the recent past. And this could well have far-reaching consequences for architecture.
