"We share more with architects; we combine theory and practice. We can read, but we know as well how to build and destroy, and sometimes kill."
Fascinating article by Eyal Weizman on how the Israeli Defence Force are using postmodern spatial theory, from the likes of Deleuze and Guattari, to inform their urban warfare tactics, and how the majority of architectural research is probably now happening in the shadow-world of the military.
The piece brings up a lot of ideas in quite a short article. If you’re interested in this kind of thing, expect to lose a lot of productivity today.
