Wind Walls, Crystalline Sarcophagi

Performative talk, 26:40 min

How does architecture move? This performative talk invites us to think about architecture through the prism of a tension: that which exists between Superstudio’s Supersurface and the campo nomadi, between the ability to mobilise the technological imagination to improve people’s habitats and the ability to enclose and constrain certain forms of life. Neither of these two aspects can be understood without the other, and together they account for the paradoxical nature of contemporary space: fluid and hyper-connected, and at the same time totally controlled and bureaucratized.
