Campaigning ArchitectureArchitectural Association London
Friday 21 June – Friday 5 July 2013
Campaigning Architecture is a design-research initiative that explores more effective ways for architects to campaign. Campaigning strategies engage the city like no other. Executed as an amalgamation of military-like precision and haphazard logic, the effectiveness of campaigning relies on strategically navigating the social, political and economic networks that make a city tick. And while our profession is never shy to proclaim, and often quicker to disdain, architects have yet to realise the power of a good campaign. Having targeted Chicago in 2012, the workshop will relocate to London in 2013. Here we will advance the strategies deployed in Chicago and campaign with new modes of architectural intervention and urban space occupation to reactivate fatigued sites within the urban fabric of London.
