Curated by Bret Schneider.

Future Conversations of Architecture stages a seven-channel audio sampled from a record titled “Conversations on the Future of Modern Architecture”. The record features the following architects in conversation: Gordon Bunshaft, Walter Gropius, Ernest Kump, Eero Saarinen, Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Mies van der Rohe. Each of the architects voice tracks are cut up, sampled, and randomly shuffled through seven audio channels continuously. The print includes the names of each architect as well as an image that is the result of superimposing seven iconic buildings, one from each of the architects on the record.
