Neri Oxman and the Endless House

Episode 4 of 30

Radio 3 presents a radiophonic art exhibition, as 30 of the world’s most creative minds choose their favourite work from the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Ep4 The Endless House

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features Professor Neri Oxman from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She's a world expert in combining art and architecture with biology, computing, and materials engineering. Little wonder, perhaps, she chooses Frederick Kiesler’s design for a project called Endless House - an organic structure that was never built.
