ABE Journal - Architecture Beyond Europe - n°6/2014

This issue of ABE focuses on the internationalization of building culture after WWII and the contributions of architects, planners, and engineers from socialist countries to these processes. Read More

Complementing the studies of colonial and postcolonial links, international organizations such as the UN, and economic globalization as conduits of the world-wide spread of architecture, this issue discusses the intersection of these networks with flows of labor power, materials, technologies, discourses and images facilitated by institutions from socialist countries. Conditioned by Cold War but not always exemplifying a bipolar division of the world, the sites where architects from socialist countries worked were often characterized by multidirectional exchanges with other professionals, administrators, educators, users, and inhabitants.
In the course of these exchanges, the imported expertise was developed, mixed, modified and appropriated by various actors. By discussing these processes, this issue offers a more complicated and situated genealogy of architecture becoming world-wide.
