blog/blogblueprint_lg.gifWith all the changes London is presently undergoing, not to mention those that the future holds, the role of architects to create new mechanisms, typologies, and infrastructure to meet new social and climatic needs is increasingly paramount to the profession.

In collaboration with the Architecture Foundation, GQ Style asked five of London's up-and-coming architects and design firms—Thomas Klassnik, Witherford Watson Mann Architects, Marks Barfield Architects, AOC and Newbetter—to design blueprints for London's future. Responses ranged from a landscape with no traces of oil or plastics and new visions for skyscrapers to Klassnik's city designed to cope with heat (pictured). The five designs were shown at Old Street's The Yard gallery earlier this spring and have been published in issue four of GQ Style.
