This volume is published in conjunction with an exhibition presenting the radical architects and architect groups who emerged in Florence in the late 1960s. It was a period characterised by crisis in the city, which extended to the wider political and social tension occurring throughout Italy. The related writings, drawings, and projects produced by these seven actors – Archizoom, Remo Buti, 9999, Gianni Pettena, Superstudio, UFO, and Zziggurat – have influenced generations of architects, historians, designers, and artists around the world. For the first time, all of their theoretical and visual work has been compiled in a single publication, giving renewed insight into their movement.
