The Shape of Things to Come: On Utopian Architecture

Utopia is diagnostic: visions of the future reveal the anxieties and longings of the present. Many architects represented in Architecture of Life, from Buckminster Fuller to A. G Rizzoli, were deeply invested in utopian ideas. Join in a conversation with writer Chris Jennings, author of the recently released Paradise Now: The Story of American Utopianism, about structures imagined by utopian visionaries throughout history—both those that were built, and those merely sketched on paper.
