Authors on Architecture

Wigley on Wachsmann

Tune in to the Society of Architectural Historians’ online event series Authors on Architecture. In this edition we hear from Mark Wigley, legendary architectural historian and author of Konrad Wachsmann’s Television: Post-architectural Transmissions. The presentation will focus on Wigley’s research and argument that Konrad Wachsmann was in fact an anti-architect—a student of some of the most influential designers of the 1920s who dedicated thirty-five post-Second World War years to the disappearance of architecture.

While taking different approaches to the form of the memoir, both books touch on similar themes, especially the role of art—writing, painting, music—in processing loss and overcoming deeply rooted patterns.
