Promoting the work of emerging architects has always been central to the AF’s mission. This exhibition showcased current projects by twelve young, international but British–trained practices. In addition, each practice was commissioned to design a house for the future.

Their schemes ranged from floating social–housing on the River Thames by de Rijke Marsh Morgan to a bubble house by Ushida Findlay for the Tokyo Suburbs, and Sauerbruch Hutton’s Photonics Centre in Berlin.
