Dean Amale Andraos speaks with faculty Andrés Jaque, director of GSAPP’s MSAAD program and founder of the Office for Political Innovation, an architectural practice based in New York and Madrid. They discuss Jaque’s current projects and the need for immediate action in pushing the boundaries of architecture and design to reinvent the way our spaces work.
“When we look at newspapers, everything that’s on the front page has architecture in it. If we think of geopolitical tensions, environmental issues, projects like the Green New Deal, all of them are loaded with architecture and design. Immediately, it’s a discussion about housing…territory…fences…borders. It’s a discussion about architectural elements.” - Andrés Jaque
