Ruins of an Alternate Future (Jinhua Architecture Park)
"One of the great, if seldom realized, promises of architecture is its capacity to affect change. The best architects seem to have this potential in mind constantly as they structure career-length narratives around the social impact that good design can achieve. While this is often hyperbole, and most projects are driven by functional or economic considerations, there is the occasional opportunity for artists and architects to create purely speculative work, where radical departures from established typologies suggest alternatives to the status quo." - Photography and text by Evan Chakroff (via Tenuous Resilience | Ruins of an Alternate Future: Jinhua Architecture Park)
