Part seven is Photography and Beyond's first feature-length work and is dedicated to maverick autodidact genius of US architecture Bruce Goff. Featuring sixty-two of the eighty-odd existing works built according to his vision. Goff's nec plus ultra inventive, fascinatingly organic, playfully ornamental, casually outré designs and the multitude of materials used in their realisation were vilified by the dominant discourse of the day (Bauhaus and the International Style). These strange, often amorphous creations were too queerly unruly for an age hell-bent on finding rigorous shapes for new world orders. Looking at the post-modernist crypto-fascism of today's architecture, one can only say that Bruce Goff's ideas and ideals are as revolutionary now as they were half a century ago.
