The aim of my new book project is to question the transnational character of modern architecture and to assess the extent to which the paradigm of transnational history can be applied to modern architecture as a historical subject. In doing so, I try to address questions of general concern for architecture. Is architecture an intrinsically transnational discipline? Does it smoothly and spontaneously cross over borders and barriers, both material and cultural? Does it transcend national identities? And are the notions and ideas associated with it in some ways transportable, movable?

Lecture

Room 103, 230 College Street

The 1950s-1960s saw the emergence of “development experts” as part of the Cold War competition over aid in the global south. Perceived as disembodied agents of global governance, where neocolonial forces seamlessly supplanted colonial ones, their expertise is usually referred to in literature as abstract and homogenous; a direct transfer of western norms and standards to the global south.
