Team 10 East. Revisionist Architecture in Real Existing Modernism
Team 10 East never existed.
This volume develops the term as a conceptual tool to discuss the work of Team 10 members and fellow travelers from state-socialist countries—such as Oskar Hansen of Poland and Charles Polónyi of Hungary, along with a number of architects from Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. The book’s contributors offer a comparative perspective on modern architecture and modernization in Central and Eastern Europe, and address “revisionism” in state-socialist culture and politics.
Team 10 East shows how the principles of postwar architecture and urbanism were appropriated, critiqued and modified both from within and from beyond the confines of a Europe divided by the Cold War.
