Bauhaus Taschenbuch 12: Architecture after Speculation
Publisher: Spector Books, ISBN: 9783959050173, Edited: Bauhaus Dessau, Format: Softcover, 107 x 146mm, 260pp
Spain’s speculative landscapes may be perceived as a test zone for a model of global urbanization that was introduced with neo-liberalisation in the 1990s. The huge vacancy rate and the consumption of the landscape in the absence of users and low levels of demand testify to the dubiousness of a form of architectural production that is based purely on the speculative value of the built objects. Bauhaus Lab has developed critical positions, counter-models, and projects that engage with the implications of this form of urbanisation.
