a charter of commons architecture
- to follow the whole phd process of Hulya go here +commons architecture
The commons architecture is aims common good, transition to post-capitalism and is a critical spatial practice. It operates through hacking and feminism. A commons architecture has to
. have a community that self-creates and self-governs the common space and shared resources;
. include a bottom-up and/or participatory process;
. be fair, just and ecological with its choices of labor force, materials, maintenance;
. prospect an alternative to existing status quo;
. critically question the issues of property, power structures and the agency of architecture;
. be inclusive and provide a safe place for anyone who wants to join;
. be tactical in its form, strategic in its spreading around or scaling up;
. operate on solidarity and empower its community and hopefully a wider range of people;
. be a subversive everyday practice.
. include agents in the process who critically engage in their fields of work.
