Arch+ Spring 2018 The Property Issue

Idea Code 18265

Space is as vital a resource as air and water. Yet architects seldom address the question of land ownership. Moreover, there is no alternative but to politicise land, which means first developing a political economy of the city and showing that the current situation is anything but natural. This issue of ‘Arch+’ aims to help change how we view urban land and encourage land law reform, to return land governance to the local level. Secondly, it addresses the domestic sphere and its activities with the help of feminist theory, because this largely falls outside the economic equation yet is also a genuinely political place. With 16 pages special feature on the Luxembourg Pavilion at Venice Biennale.
