The event will include a small talk from the Volume team and a presentation by Volume #40 contributor, Malkit Shoshan, author of Atlas of the Conflict, about her current research on military compounds. Copies of Volume #40 and recent back issue will also be available at a special discount. Hope to see you there.
Four years ago we published ‘Volume #26: Architecture of Peace’ to explore the agency of architecture in post-conflict environments. It was clear we had only scratched the surface of a tense and complex issue. So now we’ve tightened our focus and zoomed in on the period directly after peacekeeping forces have arrived. Our goal: to see what a ‘reconstruction mission’ actually is, how peacekeeping can anticipate its legacy, and how different cultures come with quite different solutions to build or maintain peace. Re-building after war, it would seem, is another battle altogether.
