Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
In recent years there has been a resurgence of the “informal city” within the discourse on architecture and urbanism. In times of economic recession, the “informal” is often advocated as the solution to the evils of the neoliberal city. A protagonist of the informal city is “infill architecture”, in which housing is reduced to a flexible framework customised by the inhabitants.The same model can be interpreted as a cynical solution that confirms the status quo in which low-cost constructions and adaptability are exploited in order to socially and politically tame an increasingly homeless population.
