7 Amazing Award-Winning Unbuilt Progressive Projects
Each year, Architect Magazine sifts through a batch of hopeful entries with an eye for its Progressive Architecture Awards for the best of the best of the unbuilt. Here's a look at 7 ingenious designs.Progressive Architecture Awards had some mind-bending unbuilt designs, from a 3-D honeycomb department store in Mexico City (take a look at this in the gallery), to a soccer field with a fold-down roof, to a port terminal shaped like a boot (or is it a ship or a sleek train?)
Open to all types of dwelling spaces, including commercial, religious, single family homes and cultural buildings they had to pack real intention (backed with money) to get the job done. In other words: “all projects must be real,” states the magazine. "Every submission must have a client who has land, a budget, and intent to build."
Although some of these winners might make you think the construction is untenable or the product of a very active imagination (necessary) without any nuts-and-bolts grounding, think again.
