The Form and Function of Science Fiction
Science fiction and architecture are both practices that imagine—and critique—new worlds. Frank Lloyd Wright’s work was both a critique of the way we build and a projection about how our built world could change. Wright wasn’t just designing a new built environment, his work was always also addressing the political and economic architecture of future societies. Some particular examples of the way in which his projects have been used in science fiction show the complicated relationship between his social and spatial imaginations.
