7 Amazing Award-Winning Unbuilt Progressive Projects
Each year, Architect Magazine names Best-of- the-Best of the unbuilt projects for its Progressive Architecture Awards. Here's a look at 7 ingenious designs.
Department Store, Mexico City
What is that cube? It's Mexico City–based Rojkind Arquitectos idea for the Liverpool Department Store, a 3-D, hexagonal, honeycomb facade made of steel-framed aluminum and fiberglass. Ingeniously, the "cavities" are tailor-made and slotted for different activities, i.e., shopping, video production. There's dining areas -- full blown restaurants -- rest rooms and other retail stores for this whimsical space.
