The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory (FAST) is an Amsterdam and NY-based architectural think-tank. We initiate and develop research, design and advocacy projects on the intersection of architecture, urban planning, and human rights. Our cross-disciplinary and multi-scalar approach explore and make visible the mechanisms behind systemic violence on people livelihood. Our projects promote spatial justice, equality, and solidarity.
FAST is led by Malkit Shoshan.
