Our Metamorphic Futures / Exhibition

 "Our Metamorphic Futures" investigates visionary projects in Soviet architecture and design practices throughout the decades of the 1960s and 1970s, which aimed at the production of new, ideal living environments that could be easily adapted according to the changing needs of their users. It would combine the latest technological innovations with a new concept of the human being as active component.

Often growing out from socialist state-sponsored research institutes and centres, they nonetheless offered an alternative to dominant practices in building construction and urban design and foresaw a future in which transformability and surprise would be central characteristics. This often required an extension of the field of design and architectural practice, shifting from the design of singular objects to the organisation of environments (and life) as a whole. During the mid-1970s, attitudes toward design and technology became more ambivalent: there emerged critical and conceptual projects pointing to the underside of an excess of consumption and a media-saturated space, indicating a need to consider the contradictions inherent in modernist ideals – in culture designed according to technology and industry.
