Y.Tzirtzilakis interception on ArchiZoom

Yorgos Tzirtzilakis presented the work of ArchiZoom in the 'radical' italian architecture context of 1960-70s. His presentation -an interception, as he called it- touched on the issue of dealing with 'neutral', 'typical' and 'indifferent' architecture. These concepts were discussed earlier in the workshop after the visit to the OTE building in Chania. Tzirtzilakis presentation aimed to provoke a positive reaction to the building and indifferent or banal architecture while insisting on the 'liberating' effects of non-figurative architecture. The last remark brought a refreshing discussion among the participants on the critical context of the work of ArchiZoom and the relation between politics and architecture.
