Architecture in Effect - The Becoming of Residential Identities
Research Project , 2012

This project, starting from the notion of architectural and social change, puts special attention to the implementation of these aspects within the field of extreme residential situations characterized by either radical spatial transgression or resident’s processes of identification. Focus is set on the analysis of conditions of transformative societal change and the interactions of concepts, convictions and constructions with a special ambition to unveil and to re-evaluate, to re-situate the potentially critical role of urban architectural interventions in situations of profound cultural and social alterations.
