Strelka Talks: Architecture and Community / Reinier de Graaf

“The ” might be the most frequently used term over the last 50 years of Architectural and Urban discourse. For decades, “the ” has served as a legitimization for anything from Team X to New Urbanism, from Celebration to “vancouverism”. But what is “the ”? Where should we look for the proper definition? How did communities appear in the past and how do they form today? Can ‘the ” influence the design of its own space, territory or context? If yes, what could be the relationship between the and architecture in the future?

In his Strelka talk is trying to answer these and other, even more complex questions.
