Hans Ulrich Obrist & Cedric Price: The Conversation Series

Vol. 21

Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

The British architect Cedric Price (1934-2003) completed relatively few buildings, but through his drawings, proposals, teachings and conversations, he exerted an enormous influence across many disciplines. For Price, as for an increasing number of architects today, architecture was an instrument towards social and pedagogical growth, and not an aesthetic gesture in itself. His two most famous structures of the early 1960s, the Fun Palace (1961) and the Potteries Thinkbelt (1964) were both intended to foster social cohesion, and were executed as short-term structures. Hans Ulrich Obrist met the great visionary and architectural theorist several times between 1999 and his death in 2003, and spoke with him about his ideas and his most important projects. The result is a spirited and vivid portrait of Cedric Price's life and work.

FROM THE BOOK
The nice thing about art galleries is that they automatically distort time—whether it's a distortion of place, or whether it's a new place, and not necessarily a distortion. Immediately, as someone looks at a painting, it's a distortion, automatically. I used to describe museums as a convenient distortion, but it must be more than that. It's nice on a wet Thursday to go and look at a rich museum and see ten thousand years of Egyptian history, but the second wet Thursday you're going to see it, it's different from the first. You've distorted the contents of the museum through familiarity, which only occurs through going twice rather than once. So the distortion is twofold: it's the compilation of old bits of history in a convenient place for the receiver or consumer. But then, I distorted Tate Modern when we visited together the other day, because going there with you was quite different from going there alone…

Visionary architect Cedric Price, speaking with Hans Ulrich Obrist, excerpted from The Conversation Series.
