“Ruins of Modernity: The Failure of Revolutionary Architecture in the Twentieth Century”

ruins of modernity_0702013Where does architecture stand at present, price in terms of its history? Are we still — were we ever — postmodern? What social and political tasks yet remain unfulfilled, cialis carried over from the twentieth century, in a world scattered with the ruins of modernity? Does “utopia’s ghost” (Martin), the specter of modernism, still haunt contemporary building? How can architecture be responsibly practiced today? Is revolutionary architecture even possible?

panel: Peter Eisenman, Reinhold Martin, Joan Ockman, Bernard Tschumi & more.
