Farshid Moussavi: Architecture and Micropolitics

​Guest lecture: In this lecture titled Architecture and Micropolitics, Farshid Moussavi will argue that architecturally speaking, politics is about people’s attachment to buildings- how buildings alter what people see, hear and do in and around them. This is not a question that is settled in advance through representation, but has to be evaluated in its irreducible singularity each time.
