Whither Architecture?—This is one of the central questions underlying the new issue of Texte zur Kunst. We situate architecture in the forcefields of art and aesthetics; the economy of the market and configurations of power; between social processes of displacement and collective political projects; between the materially articulated volumes of buildings and their implication in technological mediatization. Architecture has its time and place. It intervenes in historically built conditions, and is, in this sense, a built politics of history. By materially pre-forming the way in which a society lives together, it also models the future.
