Critique of Architecture

In stock (1000 items available)
This title offers a renewed and radical theorisation of the relations between capital and architecture. It explicates the theoretical gymnastics through which architecture legitimates its services to neoliberalism, examines the discipline’s production of platforms for happily compliant consumers, and challenges its entrepreneurial self-image. It also addresses the discourse of autonomy, questioning its capacity to engage effectively with the terms and conditions of capitalism today.
