The seventh and final Foros lecture by UIC Barcelona united under the theme – the Agency of Architecture.
The 2017 theme, the agency of architecture, sidesteps many-a-sophomoric understanding of building(s) to explore how non-traditional interventions, installations expos or structures help modern day architects create “alternatives for the built environment.” Weizman, who opened the series, framed the theme very distinctly. She said, “…the dissident is formed through self-discipline, courage and a high degree of flexibility to work and adapt under changing conditions of time, space and subject matter. For dissidence was not only to critique the state, but also to generate a viable space for political change.” Architecture to save the day!
