Future Systems was run by architects Jan Kaplicky and Amanda Levete. For years they designed visionary buildings with little to show, but then they had a starkly modern house built in northeast Islington and then rose to fame with their Lords Cricket Ground Media Stand.

This building was criticised for looking space age but being made using old-fashioned, slow techniques in a Cornish boat-building yard. Nevertheless Future Systems have certainly pushed the boundaries of English architecture, indeed building design globally.
