What would it be like to inhabit an R. Buckminster Fuller Dymaxion House? To visit Arata Isozaki's project for Hiroshima? Or to grow up in John Hejduk's Wall House? There are only speculative answers to such questions, but who wouldn't ponder them upon seeing the drawings gathered in The Changing of the Avant Garde? With 165 expertly reproduced visionary architectural drawings from The Museum of Modern Art's Howard Gilman Archive, this collection brings together a selection of idealized, fantastic and utopian architectural drawings, primarilly from the 1960s and 70s. This publication--the first to consider the drawings since the archive was established in 1998--is accompanied by essays exploring the significance of the works, and an interview with Pierre Apraxine, former curator of the collection.
