Contemplating the Future of Architecture

This illustrated volume provides insight into the work of the internationally renowned architectural firm FGP Atelier, famous for its spectacular high-rises in Asia and the construction of the biggest baseball stadium in Mexico City. Accompanying the many photographs are essays that elucidate the basic conceptual principles behind the firm’s architectural work. The result is a multilayered “big picture” that always allows for a clearly visible signature, despite the differences among the projects. Using the terms “values,” “network,” and “ambition,” the publication discusses current issues, such as sustainability, ethics, technical design, the infrastructure for a more equitable city, and finally the future of living. With Progression, FGP Atelier provides interesting food for thought about the question of which direction architecture as a discipline might take as it continues to develop.

FRANCISCO GONZALEZ-PULIDO (*1970) is a Mexican architect known for his expressive yet rational approach to design. He has worked on many different types of buildings in America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and is the recipient of many awards.
