Architecture: innovative buildings to stop and stare

Public and private, urban and rural, tiny and big: the way we build and live keeps changing all around the globe. How does modern architecture look like today – and what can we expect in the future? That’s what we seek to explore in our magazine. On G-Pulse, you can find everything from trailblazing projects and never-before-seen constructions to historical landmarks that have set new precedents in the past. Houses straight out of the 3D printer, skyscrapers defying gravity, homes generating their own energy supply: contemporary architects continue to redefine the scope of what’s possible. To a certain extent, this innovative force is born out of necessity. Factors such as climate change, dwindling resources, and a lack of affordable housing have long been calling for a change of direction. Tackling these challenges, planners and builders continue to develop with new concepts. They seek to bridge the gap between individual freedom and community, technologies and human experiences, economic progress and ecological responsibility. Our articles look at these trends from various angles, offering answers to questions such as:

  • How will we build, live, and work in the future?

  • How has modern architecture evolved into what it is today?

  • Which trailblazers paved the way for contemporary movements?

  • How does an ordinary building turn into a work of art or a visionary paradigm?


In particular, the search for environmentally friendly alternatives has become a number-one priority. Recyclable materials, renewable energy, cost-efficient heating methods: the mission is to make architecture “green” and thus lay a solid foundation for the next generations. This not only applies to single buildings – our urban landscapes are being transformed as well, with biophilic designs that bring our cities back to nature. Of course, none of these changes would be happening without the pioneering forces that stepped onto the scene long before our time: G-Pulse also takes the occasional detour into past decades and centuries, exploring iconic styles such as art nouveau or Bauhaus and the famous architects behind them.
