Keller Easterling

Keller Easterling erhält den Schelling Architekturtheoriepreis 2018

Prize winner

Keller Easterling, American Architect, Author and Professor at Yale University, is researching in the way the spatial production of our living environment is logistically balanced and overlaid with technological developments. She pursues this on a very high theoretical and linguistic level without losing sight of the specific social dimension and political potential of urban space.

With “Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and its Political Masquerades” she laid the theoretical foundation for a fresh yet critical view of the political gaps in the system of increasingly globalised architecture production. In “Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space” she examined the infrastructure network as a “community medium” and established ground-breaking points for the contemporary discussion on architecture and urban research.

Keller Easterling is considered to be one of the most important intellectual voices in the international discussion on architecture.
