Everything was Architecture: The Media Assemblages of Hans Hollein The Second Annual Detlef Mertins Lecture on the Histories of Modernism, featuring Craig Buckley.

Introduction by Dean Amale Andraos

Craig Buckley’s writing and criticism have appeared in Grey Room, the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, and other publications.

“I came to focus on things that had been misunderstood or overlooked in the historical record and could, therefore, serve as mediators for new thought and design. The writing of architectural history can close down the past or open it up anew. It can bind historical experience into yet another ism …or it can unlock the life and modernité that resides even in the modernisms we already have.”
–Detlef Mertins
