FEATURES:
For those who would divine future trends from the work of firms selected by the Architectural League as this year's Emerging Voices, winner Hagy Belzberg might say not to bother. "There is an enormous amalgamation of directions in design right now," said Belzberg, "and everyone is off on their own tangent." If the eight firms that follow are representative, hees right. The qualities that unite them (besides relative youth and clear talent) are not of form but sensibility. From El Dorado's belief in prototyping to MOS' work with the art world to Onion Flats' decision to act as developer, architect, contractor, and client, these firms show that innovation is about more than just form.
