Sergio Prego's recent work offers an opportunity to revisit the complex historical lineage of pneumatics in architecture and to consider the changing aesthetic and political stakes of plasticity within our contemporary "art-architecture complex.”

Craig Buckley is an Assistant Professor of modern and contemporary architecture in Department of the History of Art at Yale University. He is the author, most recently, of Graphic Assembly: Montage, Media, and Experimental Architecture in the 1960s (University of Minnesota Press, 2019).
