The episode sees the team discuss the announcement of curatorial redundancies and major institutional restructuring at the V&A; the life and times of Paul Crutzen, the late meteorologist and atmospheric chemist who won the Nobel Prize for his work on ozone, and who popularised the term “the anthropocene”; Andrés Reisinger's radical digital furniture that is racking up huge sales at auction; Amazon's sheepish rebrand after its new app logo raised some unfortunate resonances; and the digital push for #Multiform, a mode of architecture championed as what comes after postmodernism.
