What ideas are currently energising your architectural work and explorations? Why did these ideas become impactful while others did not? What role did mentors and peers play in the development of these ideas? What were your breakthrough insights or aha moments? What is next for you, and for the discipline and discourse of architecture? For this book, Mark Foster Gage has selected 11 of the most noteworthy and fascinating conversations from his year-long project of documenting the ideas of the next generation of designers who are revolutionising the nature of architectural practice and theory today. This remarkable collection of casual, informative, and personal interviews engages 15 architects as they reveal what made them who they are, what propels their architectural work forward, and what they anticipate comes next.


A noted practitioner, tenured Yale professor, CNN design contributor, and respected insider of the international architectural scene, Mark Foster Gage has spent his professional life with many of the most important figures in architectural discourse and practice.
