research/teaching _ LOBBYING ARCHITECTURE
Posted on August 4, 2012
Lobbying Architecture focuses on architectural potentials that play at the intersection between public and private, collective and individual, commercial and communal, etc. Understanding architecture as facilitator of existing conditions and less as a problem solver, the workshop capitalizes on what the city has to offer, explores its hidden or underutilized potentials, and intervenes with pieces of “architectural propaganda” that stages new possibilities of use. This workshop is part of the Global Design Workshop hosted by UIC Architecture in Chicago and the Architectural Association in London.
