The Architecture Exchange Series #2: How is Architecture Political? Mouffe on Architecture | Architecture on Mouffe Talk #3: Pier Vittorio Aureli - Can Architecture be Political? Dec 6, 2014 www.thearchitectureexchange.com
How architecture can be political? I will answer this question in two opposing ways. I believe that architecture cannot be political since historically the profession of the architect has been not only a practice dependent on consensus, but also an instrument of neutralization and depoliticization of the city. I also believe that architecture is always political even within the most modest job or tiny detail. By discussing case studies I will show how architecture has been both the embodiment of management and the possibility of disruption.
