May 4, 50th Commemoration

The two decades of the 60s and 70s were emblematic of political and societal transformations. With the events of May 1968, anti-war protests and womenʼs liberation movement, this climate of unrest marked the emergence of the radical or ʻcounter-designʼ movement which questioned the rationalism and functionalism of modernity by proposing utopian ideas and manifestos that could reinvent cities and create a revolution in architecture Prospects for Radical Change exhibit offers the chance to explore the projects of fifteen individuals and collectives from this period, half a century after their existence.
