Book Description

Building Change investigates the shifting relationships between power, space and architecture in a world where a number of subjected people are reasserting their political and cultural agency. To explore these changes, the book describes and analyzes four recent building projects embedded in complex and diverse historical, political, cultural and spatial circumstances. The projects yield a range of insights for revitalizing the role of architecture as an engaged cultural and spatial practice.
