Volume 7 – Power Logic
Volume Magazine takes architecture right across culture. Starting in 2005, Volume is a partnership with Columbia University’s C-Lab in New York and the research bureau of Rem Koolhaas’s OMA-AMO in Rotterdam. Together with the magazine readers they form a global network of talents to shape ideas and creativity.
Volume 7 – Power Logic: how is power using architecture to organize itself?
Volume 7 – 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.
