This Is the Age of the Architectural, Not Architecture.

Fadi Shayya

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


This is the age of the architectural, not architecture. The architectural is a praxis for making the social by covering and uncovering black boxes of flows and intensities. Architecture is ideology! The architectural in “architectural research” is not a descriptor pertaining to research in, for, or through architecture. It is an active mode of being “bound architecturally” by what we do in/through architecture, and this involves us in making the social.
