"Fantastical Aspects of Socialist Architecture" is an exhibition documenting the ongoing academic research of Tyler Architecture students in Philadelphia researching architectural aspects triggered by relations between socialist ideology and contemporary spirituality. During the advanced research studio with Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss, the final year students at Tyler’s Architecture department at Temple University mapped the array of Socialist, leftist or quasi Socialist production of architectural monuments worldwide. Tyler Architecture students then explored, visually articulated and fantastically designed the space surrounding the political spin that Barack Obama, the current US President, is "a Socialist". The result of this approach is a fantastical display of World-wide Socialist architecture. By redesigning the grounds of the Camp David Presidential Retreat, the exhibition also brings fantastical speculation of “what if” Socialism ever took ground in the US.
