Tweeting from your couch, in your sweats, can be an architectural act.
Architecture’s ability to serve and shape a public has been weakened by its disciplinary exclusivity and the privatization of public space.
Hope for architecture today is found, instead, in its ability to be shared online. There, its value is in its newfound velocity, intensity, and spread - an ability to “get around”. Attention is a currency and the image, a visual byte that circulates, has already replaced the building in space, as such. Architecture is on and of the web, and it can shape public there.
