This documentary exhibition on the Radical architecture movement in the 1960s and the 1970s, for presented the Radical movement not as "essentially conceptual contribution, as “fantastic” theories and utopian visions of the future" [1] but as "precursors of the most innovative production of the contemporary, international architectural scene."

It also contains correspondence for the planning of the exhibition, including with Hans Hollein and the Biennale administration, a draft exhibition proposal, concept development notes by Pettena, proposals for promotional material on the exhibition and press clippings.
