Clare Lyster, Principal, CLUAA, Chicago, and Assistant Professor of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago

Architects are increasingly turning to infrastructure as a site of research and design practice. The lecture contemplates architecture’s agency in the “infrastructural project”, though research on the disciplines fall out with the networks of Post-Fordist Space, what Manuel Castells calls “the space of flows”. This is presented through projects that identify new networks that challenge traditional notions of infrastructure; expose new architectural typologies in contemporary urban systems and establish new techniques for the representation of urban delivery networks.
