After the Manifesto

After the Manifesto

Does the recent explosion of the architectural manifesto signal a new urgency of the form, or does it represent a hopeless effort to resuscitate something that has outlived its useful lifespan? After the Manifesto brings together architects and scholars to revisit the past, present and future of the manifesto. In what ways have manifestos transformed the field over the last 50 years, and in what ways has the manifesto itself been transformed by new modes of communication?

The book includes the text ‘Anonymous Manifestos. The Eye of the Architect’ by Rubén Alcolea and Héctor García-Diego and ‘The Last Manifesto. The Permanence of Humanity and the Ephemerality of Geniuses’ by Carlos Labarta and Jorge Tárrago. Authors also include Craig Buckley, Beatriz Colomina, Juan M. Otxotorena, José Manuel Pozo and José A. Medina, Felicity D. Scott, Bernard Tschumi, Anthony Vidler, Enrique Walker, and Mark Wigley.
