Radical architecture

Between 1966 and 1974, a European protest movement developed, which claimed an opening of architecture to conceptual and artistic practices, free of any constructivist aim.

Architecture and nature

With his book Green Architecture (2000), the architect and theorist James Wines calls the attention of his peers to the ecological disasters related to the building industry. Going beyond a mere environmentalist criticism, he formulates the need to produce a universal message, a “green” aesthetic that presents itself as a true communicative iconography.
