We're working with a different type of architectural agency this spring. Taking examples from communities who have appropriated space in various ways; either modification of the modernist frame or the literal taking or contestation of space.

1. LeCorbusier's system of housing in Pessac, France from the 1920's:
2. Appropriation of empty urban lots in Brazil:
3. Cite Verticale in Casablanca:
This blog will document areas of discourse and architecture/urban achievements occurring in the master's program at Cornell's AAP in Ithaca, NY. While it will feature many students' work, I would like for it to maintain a discursive focus, illucidating the theoretical objectives of the work occuring here.
