Dispossession and territory at the AA School of Architecture

Next week I will be at the AA School of Architecture to discuss the work of students of Diploma 14, the unit led by Pier Vittorio Aureli and Maria Shéhérazade Giudici. I was astonished to discover the subject they chose for their research/project studios this term, as it totally resonates with the work I have been doing in the last few years. I have followed Aureli’s interventions since The Project of Autonomy (which I reviewed here a while ago, in Spanish), was aware of Giudici’s engaging and promising dissertation and their work together for the collective The City as a Project, but didn’t know about their current explorations, dealing with the notion of territory and dispossession at several scales, the same terrain I have been probing for several years now (e.g. see here, here, here and, especially, here). Their focus is on the architectural project as a tool for understanding and transforming existing configurations of territory, so I am sure many helpful complementarities with my perspective on planning and urbanization will emerge from the discussion. It will be so interesting to see what the students are doing with this intriguing and in my opinion indispensable approach.
