Architecture through the butterfly effect
The phenomenon whereby a minute localized change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere, experiencing it in architecture throughout history.
This ongoing investigation explores the little known, disregarded, and rare intimate behaviour of nature. It questions the place of queerness in the society in general and in the architectural world in particular.

We believe that structural interventions in the city fabric can help overcome inequalities and form a base for social sustainability - especially in diverse societies.
New Models of City Life

Cities are a mirror of our aspirations. Is the neo-liberal city based on knowledge for the sake of economy the only way?
Architecture of Commons
Future architecture should look for ways of living (al)together, as all power structures and capitalist formations push us more and more away from each other.
