And yet, despite the varied modes of its circulation, the majority of architecture&rsquo;s discursive knowledge reaches only a familiar audience. While contemporary means of information production and dispersal continue to exponentially grow and quicken, the circle of professional and discursive associations remains confined. Circulation, distribution, and access to knowledge are not exclusive matters of the discipline. Rather they extend past architectural limits to catalyze inquiries into hidden geographies and infrastructure, restricted access, and equity.</p><p>The history of architecture has consistently seen innovation and subversion expand not only architectural theory and practice, but also the ways in ...</p>
