Log 25 (Summer 2012)

Is resistance possible? Log 25, guest edited by French architect Francois Roche, urges us to Reclaim Resi[lience]stance -- to merge refusal and vitality into a schizophrenic logic able to navigate the antagonism between the bottom-up and top-down conditions of the globalized world. Architects and artists, theorists and philosophers, engineers and programmers drift between strategies of emergence, computation, and robotic fabrication, delineating new tactics and tools for renegotiating mechanisms of power and unsettling architectural conventions.
