This title critiques the legacy and ongoing influence of Deleuze on the discipline and practice of architecture. Since the 1980s, Deleuze's philosophy has fuelled a generation of architectural thinking, and can be seen in the design of a global range of contemporary built environments. His work has also alerted architecture to crucial ecological, political and social problems that the discipline needs to reconcile. This collection looks critically at how Deleuze challenges architecture as a discipline, how architecture contributes to philosophy and how we can come to understand the complex politics of space of our increasingly networked world. It shows Deleuze's influence on the emerging biotechnological paradigm and new practices of participatory design. It engages with contemporary approaches to the theory and practice of architecture to provide radical agendas for the practice of Deleuzian philosophy.
