Failed Architecture

Launched in 2011, Failed Architecture is an independent foundation based in Amsterdam that publishes thought-provoking articles and podcast episodes that "explore the meaning of architecture in contemporary society," and critically examine "dominant spatial fashions... reaching far beyond the architectural community." Visitors to this resource can easily browse its most recent publications on the main page, and a search bar is available in the header for those seeking a particular topic. First-time visitors may want to begin by checking out "A Decade in Failed Architecture," which features a roundup of their ten most popular articles from the 2010s, as well as highlights chosen by six of Failed Architecture's editors. Other examples of topics include: how London's old Wembley Stadium symbolizes the history of British imperialism, and an examination of Jakarta's "superblocks" and their social dynamics. Failed Architecture's contributors are architecture critics, scholars, and enthusiasts from around the world. Its Editor-in-Chief (as of this write-up) is Mark Minkjan, an urban and architectural geographer who also teaches at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Academy of Architecture, both in Amsterdam.
