Architecture Culture: Visions of the Past and Future
May 21, 2020
Visions of the Past and Future: In the monthly show about culture and the built environment, architect Susanne Tutsch (Erect Architecture) discusses green and inclusive designs influenced by the work of John Tradescant and the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, and using the language of comics to communicate designs for a communal recycling project in a lecture recorded at the University of Brighton.
Also, Alex Fitch talks to documentary film-maker Brett Ryan Bonowicz about his film on the work of cartoonist Arthur Radebaugh who designed visions of the future in his 1950s newspaper strip Closer Than We Think, which influenced visual futurists such as Syd Mead, recorded at SCI-FI-LONDON 18.
