Critical Essays on Architecture
Read Issue 57

The Avery Review stands with all those fighting, organizing, teaching, and writing for abolition—and, in architecture, with all those working against the white supremacy, settler colonialism, ableism, racial capitalism, and heteropatriarchy upheld in and by our field.

The essays in Issue 57 test the limits of the review as a genre: looking at and through places, methods, and books to envision and approach other ideas differently. Bella Carmelita Carriker complicates the “public” memory of 9/11, recording the long-term violences enacted against low-income communities of color; Supriya Ambwani exposes histories of spatial violence and colonial extraction entangled in the Great Hedge of India; Gealese Peebles traces the historiographic silhouette of Norma Merrick Sklarek to scrutinize architecture’s diversity narratives; and Peter Paul Walhout unsubscribes from the internet-as-utility rhetoric in NYC that has come to stand in for questions of inequality during the COVID-19 pandemic.
