Transmission Architecture - Mark Wigley & Nikolaus Hirsch

Jan 21, 2021, 11:59 AM

Transmission Architecture embraces the idea that architecture is more than buildings. On the contrary: it claims that traditional architecture disappears through transmission technology. Embedded in a history of anti-architecture such as Constant´s New Babylon and Buckminster Fuller´s World Game, invited guest Mark Wigley speculates about a new architecture without architecture. Wigley is a New-York based historian, theorist, and curator who explores the intersection of architecture, art, philosophy, culture, and technology. His most recent book “Konrad Wachsmann´s TV” describes the disappearance of architecture through the means radio, TV, and other human prosthetics.
