Candide No. 10: Journal for Architectural Knowledge


The first in a two-part collection of results from the conference “Architecture as Dispute,” offering fascinating perspectives from controversial production histories.

Isabelle Doucet studies how social implications through contestation became articulated during the early 1970s in the “outreach project” of students of the Architectural Associations when they embarked on a tour across the United Kingdom on a converted bus with the aim to set up a dialogue between students and the world “out there.”

Graham Owen examines the controversies of the global practice of Zaha Hadid Architects, Sabine Horlitz revisits the case of Pruitt-Igoe as a conflict-ridden history of collective actions of its residents, Adam Page analyzes the competing appropriations of the Divis Flats apartment complex in Belfast during the Northern Ireland conflict, and Camillo Boano discusses his thinking about contested urbanisms (“Disruptive Design: On Design Gestures, Breathing, and Not-Doing”).
