We are entering a new era of architecture that is technologically enhanced, virtual and synthetic. Contemporary architects operate in a creative environment that is both real and digital; mixed, augmented and hybridised. This world consists of ecstasies, fears, fetishisms and phantoms, processes and spatiality that can best be described as Surrealist. Though too long dormant, Surrealism has been a significant cultural force in modern architecture. Founded by poet André Breton in Paris in 1924 as an artistic, intellectual and literary movement, architects such as Le Corbusier, Diller + Scofidio, Bernard Tschumi and John Hejduk realised its evocative powers to propel them to 'starchitect' status. Rem Koolhaas most famously illustrated Delirious New York (1978) with Madelon Vriesendorp's compelling Surrealist images. Architects are now reviving the power of Surrealism to inspire and explore the ramifications of advanced technology. Architects' studios in practices and schools are becoming places where nothing is forbidden. Architectural languages and theories are 'mashed' together, approaches are permissively appropriated, and styles are not mutually exclusive. Projects are polemic, postmodern and surreally media savvy. Today's architects must compose space that operates across the spatial spectrum. Surrealism, with its multiple readings of the city, its collage semiotics, its extruded forms and artificial landscapes, is an ideal source for contemporary architectural inspiration. Contributors include: Bryan Cantley, Nic Clear, James Eagle, Natalie Gall, Mark Morris, Dagmar Motycka Weston, Alberto Perez-Gomez, Shaun Murray, Anthony Vidler, and Elizabeth Anne Williams. Featured architects: Nigel Coates, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Perry Kulper, and Mark West.

Throughout the early twentieth century, waves of migration brought working-class people to the outskirts of Buenos Aires. This prompted a dilemma: Where should these restive populations be situated relative to the city’s spatial politics? Might housing serve as a tool to discipline their behavior? Enter Antonio Bonet, a Catalan architect inspired by the transatlantic modernist and surrealist movements. Ana María León follows Bonet's decades-long, state-backed quest to house Buenos Aires's diverse and fractious population. Working with totalitarian and populist regimes, Bonet developed three large-scale housing plans, each scuttled as a new government took over. Yet these incomplete plans—Bonet's dreams—teach us much about the relationship between modernism and state power. Modernity for the Masses finds in Bonet's projects the disconnect between modern architecture’s discourse of emancipation and the reality of its rationalizing control. Although he and his patrons constantly glorified the people and depicted them in housing plans, Bonet never consulted them. Instead he succumbed to official and elite fears of the people's latent political power. In careful readings of Bonet's work, León discovers the progressive erasure of surrealism's psychological sensitivity, replaced with an impulse, realized in modernist design, to contain the increasingly empowered population.

Czech architecture evolved in a powerful cultural and historical environment that undoubtedly placed a greater emphasis on the conception of architectural forms than the various formal innovations that are seen around the world, innovations that all too frequently employ an approach akin to the design of car bodies while departing from the traditional notion of architecture. Certainly it does not strive to be exhibitionist. Contrary to that, in this country, architecture continues to be viewed as a traditional cultural discipline, and Czech austerity persists in expanding this cultural nature of architectural work rather than enthusiastically accepting as of yet insufficiently digested forms.

The 1970’s was marked by a seismic change that occurred in the representation of ideas in architecture as they appeared monthly on the pages of AD. The magazine bears out the energetic, experimental, environmentally-conscious and ultimately pluralist culture that prevailed throughout the 1960’s, carrying it through to the emergence of Post-Modernism in the late 1970’s. This issue of AD presents a 'Cosmorama for Now', looking at such subjects as housing, schools, health, urban design and planning. Contributors will include amongst others: Jon Goodbun, FAT, Kester Ratternbury, David West of Will Aslop Architects, Liza Fior of Muf, Jeremy Till, Nic Clear, Robert Webb, John-Paul Frazer, Pauline van Mourik Brekman and Simon Worthington of Mute Magazine, Sand Helsel, Will McLean & Pete Silver, Adam Kalkin, Chris Muller, Samantha Hardingham.
