ART AND ARCHITECTURE: From the City of the Machine to the City of Codification

The following images are part of a presentation given to the HypeArchitecture students on Monday Jan 23. We reviewed a chronological progression of futuristic influenced architecture from the 20th to the 21st century and its relationship with art and film. We started by analyzing Italian futurism between 1909 and 1944 by reviewing the exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York titled "Italian Futurism - Reconstructing the Universe" studying how the work of Mario Chiattone and Antonio Sant'Elia influenced dramatically the development of the aesthetic in Metropolis by Fritz Lang, Hugh Feriss Illustrations and Archigram. The idea of this presentation is to contextualize post-modern architecture and expose the students to the background found in the work by Frank Gehry, Randall Stout (AEIVA's architect) and Zaha Hadid.
