League Prize 2009: Foresight
Foresight is a type of cultivated ability that surveys and engages the present to achieve desired outcomes in the future. Our contemporary capacity to tap quickly into architectural successes and failures and make new tests, cataloging our lessons, makes for a crucial disciplinary foresight of self-assessment and projection.
We invited architects to show us work that forecasts possible outcomes and opportunities.
