The exhibition Super Superstudio at the PAC in Milan showcases the work of Superstudio, an architecture firm from Florence and a leader in the Radical architecture movement of the late 1960s, who’s ideas on design and architecture have influenced renowned architects such as Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas and Bernard Tschumi.
Superstudio was founded in 1966 by Adolfo Natalini and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia and remained active until 1978. Their most famous conceptual work is Il Monumento Continuo (Continuous Monument) which proposes a gridded superstructure that wraps around the world and would eventually cover the entire surface of the planet.
The exhibition presents Superstudio’s most important projects by bringing together pieces of design, installations and films. In addition, the works of 21 contemporary artists are on display, who have drawn the raw material of Superstudio’s archive.
