Terms and Conditions: Financialized Space

This issue of Architectural Theory Review investigates the relation between finance capital and architecture. In particular, editors seek contributions that explore previously overlooked situations in which the terms and conditions of finance have had spatial and architectural effects. In short: how do financial systems and practices become legible by attending to architecture as a form of evidence? And what more can be said about architecture by figuring finance into its conceptualization and/or realization?
The full call for papers for this special issue can be found via the Architectural Theory Review website.
Submissions are due 15 October 2021.
The editors welcome expressions of interest prior to paper submissions and are available for discussing possible contributions. For any questions regarding this issue please contact:
