‘A World Apart. Architectural Autonomy as Artistic Freedom’


“A World Apart. Architectural Autonomy as Artistic Freedom”, an academic paper presented at the Critic/All 2nd international conference on architectural design and criticism at the ETSAM (Madrid School of Architecture) in 2016, has been published in an abridged version in both Spanish and English in the book Out-onomy (editor: Silvia Colmenares). It is a critical analysis of what I have elsewhere termed the “biennialization of architecture”. The full-length version of “A World Apart” can be read online here.
