Gallery: 10 buildings showing the future of architecture

By Marc Kushner

We’re entering a new age in architecture — one where we expect our buildings to deliver far more than just shelter. We want buildings that inspire us while helping the environment; buildings that delight our senses while serving the needs of a community; buildings made possible both by new technology and re-purposed materials. In my TED Book, The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings, I compiled an architectural cabinet of wonders to celebrate the most innovative buildings of today and tomorrow. Here are 10 of them, including a reindeer viewing station, an inflatable concert hall and a very clever housing complex.

The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings by Marc Kushner (TED Books/Simon & Schuster) is available now. Watch his talk: Why the buildings of the future will be shaped by … you.
