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.
