Agency in Architecture explored political agencies and authorship in architecture and its spatial implications. The conversation intended to reject the singular narrative of the architect-subservient-to-capital in favor of a more nuanced portrait. The discussion explored the expanding agency of the architect, from the interface between architecture and other fields, such as political science, sociology, and environmental science, to the relationship between practice and pedagogy through policies.
