9780262514064: Architecture or Techno-Utopia: Politics After Modernism
Review:

"Scott deftly links seemingly disparate practices into a complex matrix... providing an overall picture of a profession trying not to lose itself entirely in the dematerialization and instrumentality of post-1968 revolutionary fervor." Noah Chasin Art Journal

From the Publisher:

In Architecture or Techno-Utopia, Felicity Scott traces an alternative genealogy of the postmodern turn in American architecture, focusing on a set of experimental practices and polemics that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Scott examines projects, conceptual work, exhibitions, publications, pedagogical initiatives, and agitprop performances that had as their premise the belief that architecture could be ethically and politically relevant. Although most of these strategies were far from the mainstream of American architectural practice, Scott suggests that their ambition--the demonstration of architecture's ongoing potential for social and political engagement--was nonetheless remarkable. Scott examines both the marginal and the prominent: the Marxist architectural criticism of Meyer Schapiro; the curatorial work of Arthur Drexler at New York's Museum of Modern Art; Emilio Ambasz's introduction of ideas from environmental design, European critical theory, and Italian radicalism at MoMA; the counterculture's embrace of Buckminster Fuller's domes; psychedelic and intermedia environments; the video and architectural collective Ant Farm and the politics of ecology; the early experimental practices of Rem Koolhaas; and, connecting these earlier practices to the present day, the missed opportunities for political engagement in the competition sponsored by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation for the World Trade Center site. At a time of increasing receptiveness to thinking politically about architecture and design, Architecture or Techno-Utopia offers a detailed account of the ways in which the work of architects and designers can speak to the contemporary condition.

Descripción The MIT Press, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Brushing aside tired clichs on Modernism crisis in the third quarter of the 20thcentury, Scott draws the compelling picture of a subversive laboratory without walls. In a networkof American museum galleries, university yards and open fields, curators, grass-root movements,neo-utopian groups and Marxian theorists conspired to expose architectures submission to thecapitalist order. Architecture or Techno-Utopia an echo of Le Corbusiers dilemma Architectureor Revolution- skillfully scans these theaters, in which the search for a politically engagedarchitecture led to new forms and to the return of critical thinking in design." --Jean-Louis Cohen,Sheldon H.
