Situated Practices in Architecture and Politics

Offers a framework for rethinking what “normal” architectural practice means.

This book brings together five transformative architectural practices from around the globe to critique the assumptions, working methods, and embedded social and political biases within “normal” architectural practice. Their changing ethics of practice, and how they problematize their contexts—neoliberal political and architectural economies, in deeply and increasingly unequal societies—inform an emerging critical discourse that is reshaping the field and its relationship to larger global forces. Architects must both sustain themselves and respond to the compelling concerns of our time. This book creates a forum for navigating such choices.
