Join Archinect on March 16th at Archinect Outpost to celebrate Swimming to Suburbia, the latest book of essays by UCLA professor Craig Hodgetts. Hodgetts will be joined in a conversation by Todd Gannon, the editor of Swimming to Suburbia and Section Head of Architecture at the Ohio State University (OSU).
The book is available for presale here, to be signed by Craig Hodgetts and Todd Gannon at the event.
Widely known for his award-winning design work, the Los Angeles-based architect Craig Hodgetts has distinguished himself as one of the key voices of his generation through trenchant commentary and visionary speculation on architecture and design. This volume gathers an array of theoretical polemics on buildings and cities, critical assessments of major projects and personalities, and other writings that showcase Hodgetts' unique position as both a central figure in the discipline of architecture and a tireless advocate of technological opportunities developed at the fringes of the field.
Contextualized with a critical introduction by historian Todd Gannon and illustrated with rare materials from Hodgetts' archive, this collection cuts a revealing cross-section through a turbulent period during which architecture's confidence in the Modernist project was shaken, its intellectual energies redirected, and its cultural agenda re-imagined in the face of environmental challenges, technological opportunities, lingering disciplinary traditions, and revolutionary new ideas.
Located in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles, Archinect Outpost offers a curated collection of small-run, independently published monographs, design objects, apparel and architecture publications including Art Papers, Beautifully Banal, Bracket, CLOG, Concrete Maps, Ed, Flat Out, Fresh Meat Journal, Harvard Design Magazine, Intern Mag, LA+, Log, MacGuffin, Migrant Journal, MONU, NESS, Place-Holder, Plat Journal, POOL, Project Journal, Soiled, and Thresholds Journal.
