Following the lecture, audience members are invited to continue the conversation with the speaker in the Graduate Student Lounge, located in the lower level of 230 College Street.

This presentation tracks Walmart’s spatial operations — its building efforts, its real estate practices, its management protocols, and its urban investments — to show how the company’s logistical obsessions have implications at all scales: from undermining the stability of architecture while investing it with political capacity; to challenging the inalienable features of locations by focusing on the aspects that connect rather than distinguish them; to blurring the threshold between man and machine in order to create new opportunities for inhabitation. Suggested here are also new manifestations of architecture and urbanism based on the features of logistics itself, including prototypes, loose forms, fungible locations, ambiguous borders, and recombinant territories.
