'Architecture is in exile now'

"While the whole system is pushing every community to act under the rules of market, capitalism, consumption, there have been appearing situations that show something is going wrong. Under a fictional goal of global economic stability, the IMF has been applying its own ideology based upon the Western economy, where production and income are more important than human relations. This fact has led to situations where every man is not perceived as a citizen but as a salary man, and his home is nothing more than a product determined by financial rules rather than relational links."

Cities of Tomorrow as ghost communities of today, the end of Spain's housing boom, and the art of Emilio López-Galiacho. "Not even God lives here." Via dpr-barcelona.
