The Futuristic Architecture of Jan Kaplický

Today would have marked world-renowned Czech architect Jan Kaplický’s 76th birthday. He is best known for his remarkable futuristic buildings scattered around Britain, including the Selfridges department store in Birmingham, which takes the shape of a blue free-form iceberg covered in silver disks and displays Kaplický’s typical otherworldly touch. His beautiful designs can also be appreciated through Instagram photographs taken at the Lord’s Cricket Ground’s press box in London and the Museo casa Enzo Ferrari in Italy.
