The Tale Of Tomorrow - Utopian Architecture in the Modernist Realm

Driven by idealistic visions, utopian architecture aimed to overcome social divisions and political strife, to put us in touch with nature, and enable us to live human and healthy lives. For half a century, it was both hope and inspiration.

The Tale of Tomorrow surveys this phenomenon of the XNUMXth century, featuring renowned works like The House of the Century or the TWA Terminal, as well as lesser-known masterpieces, and profiling major thinkers such as Oscar Niemeyer, Le Corbusier and Eero Saarinen.

By digging through the archives, corresponding with descendants of deceased architects and restoring photographs, the collection of utopian approaches here retains a visual power and contagious optimism.

A realization of ideals that has sometimes turned out to be imperfect, but has allowed the creation of hybrid and moving places to take us from one page of a tale to another. From a house shaped like a soap bubble to a school with lines worthy of a science-fiction setting or churches with pink, blue and yellow interiors.

Looking at past dreams, The Tale of Tomorrow is a call to reclaim our future.
