TOO FAST TOO SLOW
11 Architectural Moves
Architecture works hard to keep up to speed. In environments that are quickly changing, on borders that are stealthily shifting, and among publics that are increasingly more than human, the discipline swings between representation and agency until it becomes hard to see. A quick look around suggests that its oscillation has either sped up beyond useful limits or ceased altogether. In other words, architecture is somehow both too fast and too slow.
To help architecture find its rhythm again, AWP asks 11 designers: can architecture be made to move lithely with the present in an effort to remain an agile and relevant agent of social and cultural production?
