Superstudio & the future

A couple of years ago I went to the excellent Superstudio exhibition at the Design Museum, London. Active in the 1960’s, Superstudio were an exciting architectural practice who never actually built any buildings- and who liked celebrate the death of architecture. Being Italian, they clearly took their manifesto driven approach from their equically radical forebears, the Futurists.

Like the Futurists, they also produced great graphic work, and like the Futurists what they predicted actually seems to be happening now.

Look at this building proposed for Dubai:
