Superstudio & Radicals


The incredibly scarce, amazing, definitive Superstudio monograph, edited by Superstudio and The Moriyama Editors Studio, and published in Tokyo in 1982 by Japan Interior Inc. First and only edition of this huge, one of a kind book on one of the most influential radical architecture and design collectives to come out of 1960s Italy.

Beautifully designed and featuring a card dust-jacket cover designed by Japanese artist/designer Tadanori Yokoo, this dense volume covers Superstudio’s prolific work at the forefront of innovation in architecture and design throughout the 1960s and 1970s, from furniture, interiors, ideas for megastructures, films, photo-montages and the social organisation of cities, with their influence being seen everywhere from Koolhaas to Hadid. Eschewing modernism, Superstudio, along with Archizoom, helped usher in a new era of anti-design.
If design is merely an inducement to consume, then we must reject design; if architecture is merely the codifying of bourgeois model of ownership and society, then we must reject architecture; if architecture and town planning is merely the formalization of present unjust social divisions, then we must reject town planning and its cities. Until all design activities are aimed towards meeting primary needs. Until then, design must disappear. We can live without architecture.
Illustrated with six beautiful colour fold-outs on textured paper stock of Superstudio’s visionary photo-montages, and over 100 illustrations of architectural conceptions and interior design, along with several reprintings of manifestos and philosophical writings on architecture.
A very generous and collectable book!
Text in English and Japanese.

Founded in Florence in 1966, Superstudio challenged the modernist orthodoxy that architecture and technological advances could improve the world by creating alternative visions of the future in photo-montages, sketches, collages and films. The five members of Superstudio: Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Gian Piero Frassinelli, Alessandro Magris, Roberto Magris and Adolfo Natalini-were equally pessimistic about politics and its ability to solve mounting social, cultural and environmental problems.

About the cover designer:
Kazumasa Nagai
Born in Osaka in 1929. In 1951 he withdrew from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he majored in sculpture. In 1960 he participated in organaizing the Nippon Design Center. On two occasions his designs were selected in competitions to serve as the official marks of major national events: the Sapporo Winter Olympic Games in 1966 and the Okinawa International Ocean Exposition in 1972. Now he is working mainly on posters.

IDEA was founded in 1953 in Tokyo, Japan by the Seibundo-Shinkosha publishing company. It fast became, and remains to this day, one of the most important graphic design and typography publication in the world and certainly the most significant forum on design criticism in Asia throughout the 1950s/60s/70s/80s/90s/2000s. The magazine offers rare insight into international and domestic designers and their work through historical analysis, criticism and examples of projects.
