Kenneth Frampton: Modernization & the Presence of Architecture

In this event, Kenneth Frampton will explore the impact on architecture of a society undergoing constant technological modernization, which renders the realization of social theorist Jürgen Habermas’s "unfinished modern project" (the idea that the development of modernity has reached its apogee) increasingly remote. Subject to the triumph of globalized capitalism, we are left, instead, with the presence of architecture not only as a spiritual end in itself but also as a space of appearance capable of nurturing some form of democracy. In short, Frampton will reflect on the role of architecture in the age of endless urbanization.
