Architecture in Effect (2 vols.)
Volume 1: Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects
Volume 2: After Effects: Theories and Methodologies in Architectural Research
Architecture in Effect presents research on the co-constitution of architecture and the social by addressing concrete problems and forwarding explorative theories and methodologies. The book compromises a wide-ranging collection of essays emerging from a multi-year research collective that has brought together partners from Sweden, the Nordic countries, the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.
The socially oriented perspective of Volume #1, Rethinking the Social, is complemented by discussions of architectural and transdisciplinary theories and methodologies in Volume #2, After Effects. Together these twin volumes reflect on topics such as the utopian idea of a welfare state, the role of intersubjective and non-human points of view, and the impact of historical and current images on the making of realities. The task of these books is to present a wide range of research topics that combine historical, material, and critical research approaches that respond to our current crises and challenges. Ultimately, this enables new modes of knowledge production within architecture to be advanced in its relation to societal transformation.
