Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects
Volume 01 Edited by Sten Gromark, Jennifer Mack, Roemer van Toorn
That architecture serves as the setting for social actions, activities, and content is not a new idea. That the architectural project can precipitate crucial social change, even transgression, is a far more modern and disputed claim. Spatial design in society has recently shifted away from universal solutions toward satisfying specific market orientated interests. The time is now to reclaim architecture’s role in promoting political, economic, ecological, and cultural transformations. The radicality of architecture is renewed in the exploration of novel and unforeseen possibilities: making effects.
