In contemporary architecture, nothing appears impossible anymore. Today, every form, space, and idea—no matter how visionary, radical, or confounding—proves not only conceivable, but also technically feasible. Advances in innovative materials and digital construction tools empower a new generation of architects, engineers, and designers to build structures that would have previously remained mere dreams. This emergence of a new vernacular of radically sculpted buildings, rooms, and installations melds rigorous usability with a playful and cutting edge aesthetic, facilitating highly functional yet undeniably exhilarating spaces.

The Sky’s the Limit serves as a compelling and international exploration of these seemingly impossible, yet surprisingly practical structures and spaces by both young and established talents. Within the book, spectacularly formed permanent buildings mingle alongside expressive interiors and exteriors for both temporary projects and urban interventions.

The Sky’s the Limit challenges architects, engineers, interior designers, artists, booth builders, material experts, and exhibition planners to discover and develop innovative design and construction techniques. The projects featured here have all been built and are actively in use, transporting us to the outer limits of our spatial imagination.
