Architecture in the 21st century

Architecture and urbanization characterize the global culture and society of the 21st century like little else. In short video portraits, international architects talk about a building designed and realised by them and retrace how they developed their designs. They keep asking themselves the question: How do we live and work in the future? Our video series ARCHlab shows the answers architects have found to questions like these.
