Cen­trifu­gal ten­den­cies

The Mu­seum for Ar­chi­tec­tural Draw­ing in Ber­lin con­tin­ues its anal­y­sis of mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture and, af­ter the work of Amer­i­can and European ar­chi­tects – such as Lebbeus Woods, Peter Cook and Rem Kool­haas – it now fo­cuses on the for­mer Soviet Union. More specif­i­cally, the show “Cen­trifu­gal Ten­den­cies” (6.10.201718.2.2018) joins a se­lec­tion of au­teur draw­ings by Tallinn, Moscow and Novosi­birsk to nar­rate so-called “Pa­per Ar­chi­tec­ture”, a form of re­bel­lion be­gun by Soviet ar­chi­tects of the 1970s and 1980s against the in­er­tia and grow­ing cor­rup­tion the Brezh­nev regime im­posed upon the con­struc­tion world. Not utopias but rather fan­tasies born and mag­nif­i­cently de­signed by the ar­chi­tects of the time.
