INFRASTRUCTURE SPACE: published by Ruby Press

“This book calls for expanding and renegotiating the roles of infrastructure not only as a technical, but also as a political, economic, social, and even aesthetic matter of concern for all, claimed not only as the means for achieving more resilient forms of development, but moreover as a right to a sustainable way of life.”

ON LEAVING THE GROUND BEHIND: Essay for Protocol magazine

“Thinking of de Certeau’s remark that “the desire to see the city precedes the means of satisfying it”, we’ve done so – but not in the way those architects who once chose the skyscraper as a tool to satisfying that need might have imagined. It used to be that to stand upon the desired object of the city, the ground, one had to forfeit the top-down, panoramic view of it. Not so anymore.
