Planning for Protest
Planning for Protest

An associated project of the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Planning for Protest was a publication and exhibition organized and edited by Project Projects, Public Address, and KWY, exploring social and architectural definitions of protest in light of the 2008 financial crisis. In an effort to understand how public spaces shaped the subsequent global protests, Planning for Protest gathers proposals from twelve architectural offices in twelve global cities that examine the role of architecture in defining, or limiting the flow of protest within their respective contexts.

The publication takes the form of a folder, an “exhibition in a box,” which contains each of the twelve participants’ proposals in their entirety, along with thematic essays by Daniel Oliveira and Pedro Levi Bismarck. Performing the project’s thematic interest in structures and their limits, the publication is comprised entirely of loose, unbound sheets, providing space for readers’ self-organization of its contents.
