Work in the PLOTS umbrella considers the relationships between architecture, economy, and territory. As instruments and products of capital, buildings and architectural practices have the capacity to reinforce, interrupt, and reconfigure economic systems. Through drawing, mapping, writing and other forms of analysis, PLOTS aims to develop new methods, theories and histories of this capacity. We collect and cultivate research at the intersections of capitalism studies, architectural studies and geography, seeking new openings in conversations about property, public and private space, subjectivity, debt, real estate, and political economy.
