ArchiRadio #2: Transmission Architecture
ArchiRadio, a proposal by CIVA

#2: Transmission Architecture
With Mark Wigley and Apparatus 22, in conversation with Nikolaus Hirsch and Cédric Libert.
Transmission Architecture embraces the idea that architecture is more than buildings. On the contrary: it claims that traditional architecture disappears through transmission technology. Embedded in a history of anti-architecture such as Constant´s New Babylon and Buckminster Fuller´s World Game, invited guests Mark Wigley and Apparatus 22 speculate about a new architecture without architecture.
Mark Wigley is a New-York based historian, theorist, and curator who explores the intersection of architecture, art, philosophy, culture, and technology. His most recent book “Konrad Wachsmann´s TV” describes the disappearance of architecture through the means radio, TV, and other human prosthetics.
Apparatus 22 is a multidisciplinary art collective by Erika Olea, Maria Farcas, and Dragos Olea. Based in Bucharest and Brussels, Apparatus 22 they define themselves as poetic activists and futurologists.
