A unique collection of contemporary writings, this book explores the politics involved in the making and experiencing of architecture and cities from a cross-cultural and global perspective
Taking a broad view of the word ‘politics’, the essays address a range of questions, including:
- What is the relationship between politics and the making of space?
- What role has theory played in reinforcing or resisting political power?
- What are the political difficulties associated with working relationships?
- Do the products of our making construct our identity or liberate us?
A timely volume, focusing on an interdisciplinary debate on the politics of making, this is valuable reading for all students, professionals and academics interested or working in architectural theory.
