By considering architecture beyond academic and aesthetic analysis, and more than a mere branch of traditional art history or a civilisation’s will to form, this symposium addresses the relation between architecture and the political. We invite papers that reflect on and analyse the disciplinary and oppressive regimes accommodated by architectures at different levels—individual, social, cultural, environmental, economic or legal. More so, in this symposium we seek to formulate the hopeful, active and productive role architecture may have in the formation of social movements and in transformations of everyday contemporary life. This symposium, then, invites papers that address the possibilities for alternatives—specifically architecture with new rationales and organisation beyond scenographic or ready-made solutions proffered in the excluding interests of market economies. Preference will be given to papers that engage with theory as a way to expand the traditional narrations of the built environment.
