Architecture as Rendered Society

“Architecture is never neutral, but it is neither technodeterminist. To explore the implications of shared agendas in the architectural embodiment of thepolitical is the goal of projects like the ESCARAVOX, Plasencia Clergy House, PHANTOM or IKEA Disobedients, developed in the last 15 years by the Office for Political Innovation.”
Andrés Jaque and the Office for Political Innovation explore the potential of post-foundational politics and symmetrical approaches to the sociology of technology to rethink architectural practices. The office's slogan is 'ARCHITECTURE IS TECHNOLOGICALLY RENDERED SOCIETY' and is currently devoted to the study of connected-domesticities like politically-activated urbanism.

The Public Lecture is part of COMMONING THE CITY, the WWTF International Summer School that takes place from the 22nd – 29th of June 2014.

This lecture is organized in collaboration with the Institute for Art and Architecture
