Designers around the world are carving out opportunities for new kinds of engagement, new kinds of collaboration, new kinds of design outcomes, and new kinds of practice; overturning the inherited assumptions of the design professions. Seventeen conversations with practitioners from the fields of architecture, policy, activism, design, education, research, history, community engagement and more, each representing an emergent role for designers to occupy. Whether the "civic entrepreneur," the "double agent," or the "strategic designer," this book offers a diverse spectrum of approaches to design, each offering a potential future for architectural practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"That is exactly where the strength of Future Practice is: the book combines a moment of reflection on a wide range of proactive solutions." - Gebiedsontwikkeling

"The dialogue format of the texts in Future Practice is pleasant to read and the structure also serves the hurried reader - among the 17 dialogues it's easy for readers to pick those that interest them the most." - Finnish Architectural Review
