In a digital time of unlimited access to information, where everyone can be an architect, acurator, an intellectual thinker, Hans Ulrich Obrist's Lucius Burckhardt and Cedric Price - Astroll through a fun palace revisits the recent past of architecture through retrospectivesof Lucius Burckhardt (1925-2003) and Cedric Price (1934-2003), reflecting on its future inthe 21st century.'We often invent the future with elements from the past. Lucius Burckhardt (1925-2003)and Cedric Price (1934-2003) were two great visionaries whose work resonates andinspires new generations in the 21st century.
At the core of both their work is a practice of drawing. At the centre of the project will be the archives of drawings of Cedric andLucius, of which different aspects will be revealed throughout the Biennale. 'A strollthrough a fun palace' in collaboration with architects and artists will present a laboratorywhere the ideas of Cedric and Lucius can be toolboxes to invent the future.'(Hans Ulrich Obrist, February 2014)
