  string(1898) "The Young Talent Architecture Award was created to support the talent of recently graduated architects, urban planners and landscape architects, who will be responsible for transforming our environment in the future. YTAA has emerged from an interest in the initial stages of these architects’ progress and a desire to support their talent as they enter into the professional world.

Utopia, rigour, research, complexity and aesthetics define the works in this publication. They appear together with a text by José Luis Vallejo of ecosistema urbano (jury chairman) and the graduation projects of Álvaro Siza and Zaha Hadid, winners of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award who, following different paths, have developed their talent while maintaining their full potential.

Through these pages you will find an exciting journey in space and time that presents creative ways to improve our living conditions in different contexts.

  string(1748) "Weaponized Architecture. The Impossibility of Innocence is an examination of the inherent instrumentalization of architecture as a political weapon; research informs the development of a project which, rather than defusing these characteristics, attempts to integrate them within the scene of a political struggle. The proposed project dramatizes, through its architecture, a Palestinian disobedience to the colonial legislation imposed on its legal territory. In fact, the State of Israel masters the elaboration of territorial and architectural colonial apparatuses that act directly on Palestinian daily lives. In this regard, it is crucial to observe that 63% of the West Bank is under total control of the Israeli Defense Forces in regards to security, movement, planning and construction. Weaponized Architecture. The Impossibility of Innocence is thus manifested as a Palestinian shelter, with an associated agricultural platform, which expresses its illegality through its architectural vocabulary.

This book, comes in an era that follows the disappointment of the absolute quasi-religious enthusiasm of the modernists for the power of architecture. The counter effect of this illusion was for architecture to return to a post-modern humility only surmounted by the pictorial strength of depoliticized famous formalists. The affirmation that architecture is never politically neutral implies that the non-awareness of the political power of architecture is already a political attitude.

The book includes interviews with Bryan Finoki and Raja Shehadeh.

Léopold Lambert is also the author of The Funambulist, a daily architectural platform."
