The title Utopia now is a provocation that casts doubt on the very notion of the cultural and spatial urban context.
Starting out from Le Corbusier’s famous ultimatum “architecture or revolution” and Buckminster Fuller’s more catastrophic later sentence “utopia or oblivion”, Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner, founders of the Urban-Think Tank group define the framework of our contemporary society and imagine a more equitable and sustainable future.
The event also represents an opportunity to talk about the research project presented within the ambit of The Independent, Città Parangolé, concerning the city of the XXI century as a form of continuity with post-utopian thinking.
