The Fundamental Acts propose a collective reformulation of five great themes of the human existence – Life, Education, Ceremony, Love and Death. They were conceived by Superstudio as a series of films centered on the relationship between architecture and the acts of human life. The films were sketched in storyboard format and later published as a series of documents on the pages of Casabella magazine. The Fundamental Acts contain the possibility of reintroducing a discourse on the relationship between architecture and ritual. They have been (re)produced by a group of international contributors and the documents submitted have been collected in this book.
