Volume #7: Power Logic

May 2006
In the previous two issues we emphasized how power takes shape and acquires form. How it can be recognized. We're now taking it one step further in our Volume research campaign on the architecture of (a countervailing) power. This time we will show you how power is using architecture not simply to express itself, but to organize itself. Power structures and relations think architecturally in order to be successful. And if you hope to challenge these structures and relations, you better do the same. A true Macchiavelli is always an architect.

Sorry, this issue is sold out!
