As Sanford Kwinter once said, “Concepts are the architecture of hope.” In the modern world, conceptual architecture has only become possible due to modern man’s increasing tendency towards individualisation. Concepts, in contrast to theories, do not demand absoluteness or intellectual consensus, but rather allow for a playful and singular approach to designing and building.

The works featured in Conceptual Architecture possess sensual and atmospheric qualities that can be attributed to a delicate handling of materials and details. Unlike much conceptual architecture, most of the projects in this book have been realized, a testament to the advances in construction techniques and materials that have enabled these high-concept projects to come to fruition.

Conceptual Architecture is divided into seven sections: Public, Residential, Corporate, Educational, Mixed-use, Religious and Business. Projects include Farnborough Airport, 3DReid (UK); Opera in Copenhagen, Henning Larsen Architects (Denmark); Savannah House, LAM Architects (Netherlands); Leonardo Glass Cube, 3deluxe (Germany); Sagaponca House, Stan Allen Architect (USA); and more.
