Before and After

Architects and urban practitioners, toiling daily at the coalface of economic expansion, are complicit in the perpetuation of growth. Yet they are also in a unique position to contribute towards a move away from it. As the drivers of growth begin to reveal their inadequacies for sustaining life, we must imagine alternative societal structures that do not incentivize unsustainable resource and energy use, and do not perpetuate inequality.

A collaboration with the Oslo Architecture Triennale

The infrastructural breakdown that flammable cladding, rusting steel, and deteriorating concrete all point to—collapsed bridges, charred towers, and crumbling roads—is not only evidence of material degradation, but systemic abandon whose effects ripple far beyond any one site. Structural instability is not just a determinant feature of the built environment, but of contemporary life at large.

A collaboration with PennDesign

Citizenship has never been constituted as a singular, monumental edifice, reducible to any one institution of power or construction of identity. As a cluster of rights, responsibilities, and attachments, the lived experience of citizenship speaks to the plural, complex, and intimate relations we have with the actual and virtual spaces we inhabit.

A collaboration with the United States Pavilion of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia​

The Urban Village is hybrid. It is somewhere, something that once was, and still is, but is also, whether for want or not, becoming more. Like a chimera, it is unstable, vulnerable, and volatile, yet portends a new model for life, if only it is to survive. The Urban Village eludes capture by deductive reasoning, for no category of type can describe the molecular alchemy that thrives within.

A collaboration with the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (UABB)

If there is no theoretical framework, no grand narrative, no normative system of values that offers architects orientation today as there might have been fifty years ago, there is an opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the past, map out new horizons, and work towards more inclusive, global futures.

A collaboration with the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta), ETH Zürich

Architecture has representational power—agency in determining who or what gets represented, and how, within its realms of visibility and effect. But given that plans, models, sections, diagrams, and the like are instrumental to governmental institutions and the distribution of rights, is representation as a political category not architectural in nature?

A collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut and The Berlage

The public is vexed, but cannot be ignored. The commons should be believed in, just not depended on. What lies in between the history of public space and the notion of the commons is a frontier in the struggle for political equity and social equality.

A collaboration with the New Museum's IdeasCity initiative

A rhetorical space for claims to be made, risks to be taken, and experiments to be rigorously conducted. A platform for the most challenging, provocative, and critical texts being written in the field of architecture today.

An initiative by e-flux Architecture

The temples of commodity that Benjamin identified in the Parisian arcades have long-since moved out of the city and onto the internet, leaving something like a void in the capital of cities that has been quick to be filled in and fought over by start-up ventures. Solutions are the commodity of today, and we know the ones we have to be insufficient in addressing the challenges we face. What is needed is a different way of seeing; a different language for questioning.


A collaboration with MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology

Automated technologies have been deployed throughout the social and economic sphere since the dawn of modernity, obscuring a common emancipatory horizon by means of a double bind: by giving and taking, liberating and ensnaring, alleviating and obliging. Technological development has an inherently uncertain future, which places focus on the agents and mechanisms of its progress. Opportunity is not destiny, and history, as we know, can go any which way.


A collaboration with MAK Wien

The climate is not the weather. Weather can be experienced, but to understand climate, media is necessary. As the computational capacity to manage meteorological data emerged in the middle of the twentieth century, so did the means of visualizing and disseminating these new forms of complex information.


A collaboration with Daniel A. Barber

Refugee camps are established with the intention of being demolished. As a paradigmatic representation of political failure, they are meant to have no history and no future; they are meant to be forgotten. The only history that is recognized within refugee communities is one of violence and humiliation. Yet the camp is also a place rich with stories narrated through its urban fabric.


A collaboration with DAAR

The field of design has radically expanded. As a practice, design is no longer limited to the world of material objects, but rather extends from carefully crafted individual looks and online identities, to the surrounding galaxies of personal devices, new materials, interfaces, networks, systems, infrastructures, data, chemicals, organisms, and genetic codes.
