Jan Kaplický Architect of the Future

The Guardian dubbed him 'the most radical architects of the last 40 years'. Best known for designing the Media centre at Lord's and the branch of Selfridges in Birmingham's Bullring centre, Czech born Jan Kaplicky died this year and is the subject of a new exhibition on at The Design Museum along with the bigger-scale Mariscal, both opening tomorrow. Well worth a visit if you like crazy visions of the future. We, here at Things to Look At enjoyed peering very closely into the models so we could imagine some Logan's Run vision of the future.Here is what Design Museum's Deyan Sudjic has to say on the legend.
