My Brooklyn, Not Yours | Jacobin »

"Looking at hipster culture in relationship to their work offers alternative ways of thinking about how the city changes, how we remember it, and what it might mean to oppose the march of neoliberal development without relying on a nostalgia that reflects our memories and desires more than our actual history.”

Teddy Cruz y el urbanismo de frontera y desecho (Otros arquitectos 4) »

Es el flujo físico de inmigrantes lo que fomenta, a su vez, el flujo de residuos y el papel de esos inmigrantes convertidos en autores físicos, e ideológicos, de la transformación de los territorios. El barrio estadounidense y el poblado limítrofe, al otro lado de la frontera, es lo que le interesa. Pedazos de los barrios tradicionales norteamericanos pasan al otro lado de esa frontera para construir otras casas. Los materiales de desecho son reutilizados por obreros que han sido capaces de extraer de ellos otro tipo de arquitectura que aúna supervivencia con creatividad e ingenio con precariedad.”

Architects & Slums: A Few Ideas and a Debate »

"…architecture can never be a “solution” for what is caused by economical condition. At its best it is an implementation of it. At its worst (like for the slums) is its phsycal representation, not a model to study.”

In Defense of the Ferguson Riots | Jacobin »

"Riots, like other forms of political action, can build solidarity. They can create strong feelings of common identity. The outrage in Ferguson quickly attracted marginalized people throughout the region. Rather than evidence of illegitimacy, the presence of these “outsiders” reflected the magnetic power of the political moment."
