Columbia books on architecture and the city
Amale Andraos - WikipediaThe editors, Esther Choi and Marrikka Trotter, observe in their introduction that architecture is in a state of crisis. Yet the editors also observe that architecture has never not been in a state of crisis. At least since the Renaissance, the field has experienced its crises like clockwork, tortured about its reasons for being and its ways of being in the world, in political, technical, and aesthetic terms. To see these struggles as the rule rather than the exception, the editors argue, would be an act of radical self-awareness for the profession, which could no longer excuse its actions as emergency measures, and would instead need to take honest stock of its conduct. The contributors to the volume—who are artists, designers, theorists, and often all three—reimagine what architecture might be. Many of them recast the role of the architect from that of builder, operating within the narrow constraints of the project and the imperatives of growth and profit, to that of public intellectual, organizer, and savvy stakeholder in political, legal, and economic discussions at the level of the building, the city, the region. Several of the authors emphasize the ethical responsibilities and agency of the architect as a way of throwing a lifeline to the profession.

While no less crucial, both fail to implicate architecture in the more long-standing and pervasive histories of incarceration in the United States. Paths to Prison: Histories on the Architecture of Carcerality is concerned not only with the architectural origins of today's carceral state, but how we might locate its racial formula in other spaces.
