What is radical today?

The Royal Academy of Arts

06 Sep 201907 Nov 2019

Gathering the visions of 40 emerging and established architects, artists and thinkers about what is most radical in architecture today, the new free display “What is radical today?” in the Royal Academy of Arts’ Architecture Studio presents 40 works range from drawings to manifestos, photographs and collages, from legendary names involved fifty years ago in the radical movements such as Archizoom and Archigram, to new and emerging practitioners, all questioning how architecture’s agenda is responding to today’s rapidly changing world and how the discipline is being reframed.
