Nachtclubs und Diskotheken. Architektonische Visionen

Author(s): Darò, Carlotta


Nightclubs and discotheques were more than just trendy architectural venues in the 1960s and 1970s. This essay explores how these places of musical entertainment became spaces of stylistic and functional experimentation for the neo avant-garde as well as inspiring models of the social. Some projects of that period – from the radical Italian architects'pipers to Constant's and d'Archigram's urban visions – show progression not only in terms of their scale but, as well, in their ideological concerns. Fascinated by the resources of modern technology and emerging pop culture, this generation of architects and artists was less interested in the built form than in the ideal of a controlled environment.
