infrastructural opportunism – mammoth // building nothing out of something

infrastructural opportunism

Mammoth will be in New York tomorrow night — January 28th — presenting at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in an event tied to the recent release of Lateral Office/Infranetlab’s Pamphlet Architecture 30:

MANIFESTO SERIES 02
INFRASTRUCTURAL OPPORTUNISM
PAMPHLET ARCHITECTURE 30 +

Storefront for Art and Architecture presents Manifesto Series 02: Infrastructural Opportunism showcasing 100 points [10 speakers] towards a new methodology of action for the 21st century.

While contemporary politics is navigating towards a better understanding of the geopolitical consequences of an increasingly globalized territory through a publicly acknowledged Infrastructural Investment, architects, simultaneously, have shifted their attention from the object to the territory. Coupling: Infrastructural Opportunism , the last issue of Pamphlet Architecture, is a collection of projects, strategies and methodologies that show us how to learn to see our build environment anew and find new opportunities for action. This event will bring together a series of this issue’s contributors and other architects and writers to deliver a series of fresh thoughts towards an Infrastructural Opportunism.

Presented by INFRANET LAB + LATERAL OFFICE

The infrastructural opportunism begins at 7 pm; see the Storefront’s website for more details.  We’d love to meet any readers who can make it.

    Does this mean that Mammoth has an article/project in Coupling: Infrastructural Opportunism?

    Just another reason for me to go ahead an actually purchase.

    also, must say finally got my copy of Bracket on Farming. Luanda projects looks quite nice in glossy color….

      Nope, nothing in the book. But I picked up a copy a few weeks ago and I would definitely recommend purchasing.

      Yeah, it was really fun to see the Luanda project in print — Thumb did a ridiculously good job with the design of that book. (Though I think something went wrong — probably on our end — with the plan image. The background and the foreground are weirdly misaligned, which you can see if you compare it to this.)
