Something Fantastic is the multifaceted manifesto of three young architects Ð Julian Schubert, Elena Schtz and Leonard Streich. It is also the name of their new Berlin-based studio; both book and studio derive from a diploma thesis at the University of the Arts, Berlin. Something Fantastic calls for increased consciousness in architectural thought and action, particularly in relation to the environment, energy and contemporary politics. Excerpts from thinkers and theorists Ð from Thomas Hobbes to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Ð and interviews, including with Markus Miessen and Werner Sobek, inform a publication determined to call for change, and offer hope for the future.
