Rearticulating the Social


Architecture should be treated not as an origin but as a trajectory. We try to develop a methodology in which we can mobilize the trajectory of the built environment and register the changes in its evolution, its accidental or unstated transformations. These sites are crucial because they allow one to intervene in ongoing conflicts, take a position, and redefine ethics. So I agree with you, a changing understanding of the role of the architect and the nature of its intervention can and is allowing for a transformation in practice. This doesn’t need to be seen as a form of direct activism, which is often enacted from a predetermined position, but rather as participating in wider processes of social change and rearticulation.
