Public Lecture #2: Fake Industries Architectural Agonism

Fake Industries Architectural Agonism (FKAA) is an entity of variable boundaries and questionable taste that provides architectural tools to mediate between citizens and institutions, the public sphere and disciplinary knowledge. Created by Cristina Goberna and Urtzi Grau from their headquarters in New York, Sydney and Barcelona, FKAA bridges the professional world and the environments of architectural academia to reclaim the architect’s role as a public intellectual—that is, someone who earnestly risks his or her credibility to question hegemonic beliefs. Currently completing the New Velodrome of Medellín, the Superphosphates! Masterplan in Cáceres and the OE House in Barcelona, for the last 8 years the office has consistently used its winner entries of the competition Europan (8, 9, 10, and 11 editions) as an alibi to explore the domestic dreams of the south of Europe. In 2014, FKAA won the AIA New York New Practices 2014 prize and was shortlisted for the MoMA PS1 YAP, for the Art-Basel-Miami Design pavilion and the Guggenheim Helsinki.
