How can we use our privilege to include more perspectives, to better engage with communities, to create inclusive and just platforms that challenge the status quo and dominant powers?
The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory is an architectural think-tank that works at the intersection of architecture, urban planning and human rights, or design and activism. FAST seeks to make visible systemic violence and improve the quality of the built environment and people's livelihoods. Our interdisciplinary and multi-scalar projects include the award-winning book 'Atlas of the Conflict: Israel-Palestine,' 'Village. One Land Two Systems and Platform Paradise,' the long-term collaborative research project BLUE: Architecture of UN Peacekeeping Missions and Design for legacy, which examines and makes UN peace missions' impact on cities and communities visible. FAST is led by Malkit Shoshan.
