Deborah Hauptmann | Syracuse Architecture
Architecture Fall 2019 Lecture Series – October 31, 2019 in Slocum Auditorium.
Hauptmann is Professor and Chair of the Department of Architecture at Iowa State University.
In the early 1980s Michel Foucault was pressed by Paul Rabinow in the interview subsequently held under the title Space, Knowledge, and Power (1984) to take a position as to whether architecture as a practice could claim to exert the power of space. Concluding that “the three great variables-territory, communication, and speed … escape the domain of architects.” Today, with the double progression of body and brain, or the analysis of bio-politics expanded to noo-politics, this conclusion will be respectfully challenged and reframed.
