Surveying a vast array of visionary architectural and urban design projects, conceptual architectonic installations and futuristic furniture pieces produced primarily in Italy, Austria, England and the United States during the 1960s and early 70s, this catalogue presents illustrations and texts documenting more than 200 experimental works by Hans Hollein, Coop Himmelblau, Arata Isozaki, Kisho Kurokawa, Cedric Price, Archigram, Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Peter Eisenman, John Hejduk and nearly 30 other international architects, designers and collaborative teams. A substantial essay illuminating the theoretical underpinnings and interdisciplinary character of "radical" architectural and design strategies of the period is supplemented by a brief anthology of design-related manifestoes dating from 1908 to 1963 and an extensive selection of writings by the featured figures. Last available copy is slightly shelf worn with sticker attached to front cover; otherwise, in Fine condition.
