In Return to Future, independent New York architects Seymour Rutkin and Rolland Ristine exhibited a collection of proposals for houses, parks, stadiums, theaters, office buildings and landscapes. Rutkin’s work originated in a synthesis of organic form with concrete and steel building methods, thus expressing nature’s laws of compression, tension and gravity. The exhibition included drawings, scrapbooks, sketchbooks and explanatory pamphlets. The title of the exhibition played off Zemeckis’s movie Back to the Future, released a few months before the show opened.
