Spatializing Justice: Building Blocks
- Spatializing Justice, by Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman, calls for conscious architecture that confronts social and economic injustice and uneven urban growth.
- It asks architects and and designers to take a stand via the medium of 30 short manifesto like texts.
- Suggested approaches range from redefining infrastructure to refitting McMansions. These building blocks call for expanded modes of practice, through which architects can imagine new spatial procedures, political and economic strategies, and modalities of sociability.
