You need to look at it, speak with it, interact, explore, touch, and at the end, for sure, admire. It is not done for a magazine page, and neither to hang in an exposition room and amaze everybody around because it is &lsquo;beautiful&rsquo;.

Contemptuous of the long reign of Modernism, which they felt had sold itself as a cure to society&rsquo;s ills and never delivered, they were jazzed by American science-fiction novels and the political foment of the 1960s.

It is because the exhibition and ongoing research project <a href="http://www.clipstampfold.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Clip/Stamp/Fold</a> has landed in the south hemisphere by this month until July 2013. Santiago has had the chance for this first landing. The local version of the project became real due to the remarkable work of Fernando Portal, Pablo Brugnoli and Andrea Lathrop, whom gave shape to the Chilean participation on the architectural radical magazines of the 60&rsquo;s and 70&rsquo;s.</p> <p> The selected local magazines were proposed according to the main outline: &ldquo;radical architecture of little magazines&rdquo;.
