Sorry, Out of Gas
Architecture's response to the 1973 oil crisis
This catalogue reports the contents of the exhibition “1973: Sorry, Out of Gas”, curated by Mirko Zardini and Giovanna Borasi in 2008 at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal.
Its aim was to analyse the seventies’ world energy crisis, the first event to demonstrate our inevitable dependence on energy resources, and to ponder some of the possible solutions suggested by a few architects and engineers almost 35 years ago. Published by CCA together with Italian publishing company Corraini, the book has an insert illustrated by Harriet Russell.
