Enrique Ramirez will bring together some of the most interesting practitioners of architectural history and practice. In his words, they will cover: “green technologies, airplanes-and-ships-as-architecture, fake manifestoes, fictional histories, real fictions, urban spacesuits, people movers, jet-pack rentals, liquid architectures, vegetative structures, pneumatic pods, and many, many other things.” Sounds good to me!
