Neo-futurism

Neo-futurism is a late 20th-early 21st century movement in the arts, design, and architecture. It is a departure from the skeptical attitude of post-modernism connected with an idealistic belief in a better future and “a need to periodize the modern rapport with the technological”.[1]

This avant-garde movement[2] is a futuristic rethinking of the visual and functionality of the rapidly growing cities affected by a wide-scale urbanization. The swift industrialization that began to occur internationally following the Second World War gave wind to new streams of thought in life, art and architecture that led to Postmodernism, Neomodernism and then Neo-Futurism.[3] In the Western countries, Futurist architecture evolved into Art Deco, the Googie movement and High-Tech Architecture and finally into Neo-Futurism.[4] Neofuturistic urbanists, architects, designers and artists believe in cities releasing emotions, driven by eco-sustainability, ethical values and implementing new materials and new technologies to provide a better quality of life for city-dwellers.

Neo-Futurist architects, designers and artists are French architect Denis Laming;[71][72][73][74][75][76][77][78][79][80][81][82][83][84] American artists Erin Sparler,[85] Marlow Rodale,[86] Studio-X Lawrie Masson;[87] Panayiotis Terzis,[88] and Miguel Ovalle;[89] urban-noise artist Joseph Young;[90] French designer Patrick Jouin[91] British artist Olivia Peake;[92] Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato,[93][94] Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag[95] and Greek artist Charis Tsevis.[96][97][98][99][100][101] Neo-futurism has absorbed sоme оf the high-tech architecture’s themes аnd ideas, incorporating elements оf high-tech industry аnd technology іntо building design:[102] technology and context is the focus of some architects of this movement such as Buckminster Fuller, Norman Foster,[103][104] Kenzo Tange, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Frei Otto, and Santiago Calatrava.[105][106][107]

The relaunch of neofuturistic architecture and art in the 21st century has been creatively inspired by Iraqi-British Pritzker Prize architect Zaha Hadid,[55][56][57][58][59][60] Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava[61] [62][63][64][65] and by its thought leader Italian innovation designer Vito Di Bari.[66][67][68][69][70]

People

Neo-futurism has been relaunched in 2007 after diffusion of “The Neo-Futuristic City Manifesto[37][38][39][40] included in the candidature presented to BIE (Bureau of International Expositions):[41] and written by innovation designer Vito Di Bari,[42][43][44][45] a former UNESCO's Executive Director,[46] to outline the vision for the city of Milan at the time of the Universal Expo 2015. Di Bari defined his neofuturistic vision as the “cross-pollination of art, cutting edge technologies and ethical values combined to create a pervasively higher quality of life”;[47] he referenced The Fourth Pillar of Sustainable Development Theory[48] and reported that the name had been inspired by the United Nations’ report Our Common Future.[49] Jean-Louis Cohen has defined Neo-Futurism[50][51] as “a corollary to technology, being the structures built today byproducts of new materials to create previously impossible forms.” Etan J. Ilfeld wrote that in the contemporary neo-futurist aesthetics "the machine becomes an integral element of the creative process itself, and generates the emergence of artistic modes that would have been impossible prior to computer technology."[52] Reyner Banham’s definition of “une architecture autre” is a call for an architecture that technologically overcomes all previous architectures but possessing an expressive form,[53] as Banham stated about neo-futuristic “Archigram’s Plug-in Computerized City, form does not have to follow function into oblivion”.[54]
