MANIFEST issue 2

Kingdoms of God

Author:Anthony Acciavatti, Justin Fowler, Dan Handel

Publisher:MANIFEST

ISBN: 9780692414484

  • Paperback
  • English

Issue 2 of MANIFEST takes up the issue of architecture and religion in the Americas. How does one mark the other? What are the spatial results of the impulse toward congregation and the individual desire to find a direct link to something beyond one’s self? How do religious institutions impact the politics of the built environment? How does architecture give face or meaning to religion? How does religion, however we might understand it, shape the formation of American landscapes and push back against regimes of national sovereignty, neoliberal economics, and cultural secularism? What is its architecture?
