SHAPING OUR FUTURE: CORPORATE POWER AND ARCHITECTURE

Jul 13, 2015 by

  By Laura Flanders, GRITtv | Video Interview

How do we shape our future, right now? Author and architect Keller Easterling discusses the role architects should take to shape a better world, and the invisible systems used by corporate power to exert control over populations.

Easterling talks about her latest book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space, and what how architecture can shape our futures – for the better or worse.

And later in the show, we speak to scientist Helen Caldicott about facing the nuclear threat. How much do you love your children, the planet, your own life? Caldicott says that nuclear – whether power or bombs – pose such a great threat to all of these, that we must stare it down and change.
