CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The political, social, and economic upheaval of the early twentieth century
generated an extraordinary range of proposals for the future as successive
generations grappled with issues of organizing vast urban systems and
humanizing dense industrial environments. As conceptual design became the
vehicle for exploring ideas and presenting new movements, a dialogue between
technology and design began to emerge.
A History of the Future explores the impact of modern technology on design
and planning, beginning with Renaissance concepts that laid the foundations for
modern visionary work and concluding with emerging projects in sustainable
design. It also includes relevant projects in related fields, such as film,
photography, and industrial design.
Profusely illustrated, A History of the Future is a visual survey of the
heroic, utopian, and occasionally misguided visions of the twentieth century.
