From the top of the earth to the bottom of the sea, architecture has some exciting buildings in store for 2019. Whether it’s through the use of innovative materials, unprecedented scale, or whimsical ideas, common to all is the breaking of boundaries. These projects take in their purposes and environment, and work to create something useful yet imaginative, seeking to inspire us in turn via our surroundings.
Architecture is going through a period of rapid and exciting change. In 2018, China led the race in skyscrapers, with more than anyone else combined, and the international net was widened with a Pritzker Prize for an Indian architect. What’s more, we saw unconventional and socially-conscious buildings crowned winners of some of architecture’s biggest accolades.
And the trend continues for 2019, with groundbreaking designs and astounding feats of engineering taking to the world stage. Take a look at some of this year’s most anticipated buildings.
