The 20 most anticipated buildings of 2022
Plato said that the beginning is the most important part of work: and this is even more true when we view the beginning of the new year not only as a starting point in the calendar, but especially in real life, for personal and collective improvement with confidence and through concrete action. And concreteness is the “dough” of which architecture is made, a craft that gives shape to dreams by transforming them into built works: in the best sense of the word for the benefit of the individual that they and society as a whole use.
2022 sees many challenges in this area, to which 20 of the world’s greatest architects respond with enthusiasm and conciseness: reducing the ecological footprint and ecological sustainability (CFMøller architects, Gothmeh, UNStudio, Boeri, Hadid, BIG, BVN / RXN), promoting culture as Instrument for integration and socio-economic innovation (BIG, Piano, Snøhetta, JKMM, OMA, Provencher_Roy, Adjaye, SANAA), urban renewal (Nouvel, UNStudio, Kaan architecten, SO-IL).
Challenging bets with high expectations. In the words of Rainer Maria Rilke: “And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been before ”.
