Constant's Diorama featured in Harvard Design Magazine

Fondation Constant is proud to announce that Constant’s model Diorama II (1962) is featured in (the newly relaunched) Harvard Design Magazine no. 38 (Spring/Summer 2014). It illustrates an interview by Lian Chikako Chang in conversation with Jonathan Zittrain called “Let’s See What Happens.”


Diorama II, 1962


Diorama II, 1962

It is a conversation between architect Lian Chikako Chang and Harvard University professor of law and cofounder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society Jonathan Zittrain. The two discuss “generative technology”—technology that allows third parties to adapt and innovate it—as opposed to “tethered technology,” which locks users, coders, and designers into a specific, non-flexible framework. Together, they reflect on these types of technologies and their implications and reflections in architecture and the built environment. Should be an interesting read!
