A Different Architecture List

New, 3 comments

If there's a best best-of-decade architecture list out there, it might be Mammoth blog's, which LA Observed describes as "not your typical architecture list." In fact, the list isn't so much about architecture per se, but about the future of cities — the decade past pointing toward the decade to come. Heavy, right? Among their prize-winners: the iPhone, with its "capacity to so thoroughly transform the urban experience," and the Quinta Monroy community in Chile, which makes use of the "values and aims of ownership culture" so former slum dwellers might add value to their homes, rather than let them degrade.
