OUT LOUD JOURNAL
ISSUE 003: TRAFFICKING + ARCHITECTURE
Architecture as built environment is subjected to the cacophony of local, regional, national, and international operations people pursue every day. Buildings become actors in the interchange of goods, facilitate legislation, and house people of all intentions around the world. Architecture is not an unbiased bystander to these activities. In the context of exchange, Architecture is a vehicle with facilitative agency.
Trafficking is not often perceived as it relates to Architecture. In some cases, our discipline actually liquidates its stake in the construction industry as a way to distance itself from the repercussions of labor abuse and modern slavery. Traffickers of all commodities, both human and non-human, capitalize on this ambivalence of liability, and continue to operate while litigation unfolds. The means and methods of their activity is facilitated by the environments we construct, wittingly or not. For this issue, we encourage contributors to perceive of Trafficking through the lens of Architecture, but more importantly, of Architecture through the lens of Trafficking.
In TRAFFICKING + ARCHITECTURE, Issue 003 of the Out Loud Journal, we are investigating the intrinsic connection between Architecture and Trafficking. We are interested in publishing a wide range of work, commentary and criticism, and welcome anyone from any field to contribute original work. Issue 003 will also highlight and discuss winning projects from ARCH OUT LOUD’s Tenancingo Square Mediascape competition.
