In this lecture, Shoshan will present case studies from Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory’s (FAST) ongoing investigations and engagements with conflict and post-conflict areas. On the intersection of research and design activism, Shoshan will examine how global and national processes and policies contribute to the formation of the built environment. With a focus on border dynamics, migration and systemic segregation, FAST’s projects explore the agency of design in supporting and enacting actions of solidarity.

The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory (FAST) is an Amsterdam- and New York-based architectural think-tank that initiates and develops cross-disciplinary research, advocacy, and design projects at the intersection of architecture, urban planning, and human rights. FAST is directed by Malkit Shoshan.

The event is part of the Arriscraft Lecture Series, Fall 2018.
