Volume 7: Power Logic

Purchase Paperback
The third installment in Volume's "Architecture of Power" series. Where issues 5 and 6 emphasized how power takes shape and acquires form—and how it can be recognized—issue 7 goes one step further to show 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 one hopes to challenge these structures and relations, one had better do the same—a true Macchiavelli is always an architect. And if architecture is released from its materialism and can engage with everything, it will become clear how everything is already dealing with architecture. Issue 7 includes contributions from Stephen Graham, Noam Chomsky, Jacqueline Hassink and more.
