Les Visionnaires

Another story of architecture.
Un’altra storia dell’architettura.

1950-1970: the changes started by the twenty years of experimental architecture that spread out in Europe imagining new possibilities of living, as alternative to the traditional and modernist ones. Utopias that have given space to “another story of architecture”, as it’s written in the subtitle of the document carried out in collaboration with the museum of Orléans of FRAC (Fonds Régionaux d’Art Contemporain) and starting from the works guarded in the collection and with the interventions of some of the architectures of that visionary generation. Among the others: Andrea Branzi, Peter Cook, Yona Friedman, Hans Hollein, Jean Nouvel, Claude Parent, Wolf Prix and Michel Ragon.

1950-1970: i mutamenti innescati dal ventennio di architettura sperimentale che dilagò in Europa immaginando nuove possibilità dell’abitare, alternative a quelle tradizionali e moderniste. Utopie che hanno dato adito a “un’altra storia dell’architettura”, come recita il sottotitolo del documentario realizzato in collaborazione del museo d’Orléans del FRAC (Fonds Régionaux d’Art Contemporain) e in base alle opere custodite in collezione e con gli interventi di alcuni degli architetti di quella visionaria generazione. Fra gli altri: Andrea Branzi, Peter Cook, Yona Friedman, Hans Hollein, Jean Nouvel, Claude Parent, Wolf Prix e Michel Ragon.
