Nostalgia: Architectural Manifesto

Thomas Langton

A project undertaken during my second year, the Architectural Manifesto brief was to take inspiration from the graphical representation and imperative tone of the original 70’s manifesto genre popularised by the likes of Bernard Tschumi. The manifestos sought to define what architecture should do and how it should be perceived. 

In the Nostalgia manifesto, I make the accusation that meaningful engagement with our built environment is lessening as the superficial world of technology ever-increasingly dominates the fore of contemporary culture, and call architects to react by designing for more authentic interactions with space; encouraging nostalgic moments.
