A Dream team of Memphis and post modern architects, all collected here by Radice. In many ways the aesthetic of some of the architects here is better applied to jewellery than the built environment, so one could see this as a logical conclusion to that particular chapter in design, there are also some serious heavyweights in here and it is nice to see them apply themselves to something a little lighter than usual. With Michele de Lucchi, Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Robert Venturi and others.
