This seminar, part of Toolkit for Today: Legalities for Living reflects on the relationship between architecture and “jurisdictional technics”—Manuel Shvartzberg Carrió’s formulation for how spatial practices are deployed to manage territorial conflict. This project entails a re-evaluation of the relationship between law and architecture, and more particularly, of how architectural practices and techniques—including those of architectural historiography—inflect and construct “jurisdiction” as a field of power between geo-politics and geo-metrics.
Dr. Manuel Shvartzberg Carrió is Assistant Professor in the department of Urban Studies and Planning at UC San Diego, where he is also faculty in the Design Lab, co-Director of the Just Transitions Initiative, and a member of the Indigenous Futures Institute. An architect and architectural historian, he has taught design, history, and theory at various institutions, including Cornell University, Columbia University, the California Institute of the Arts, and the University of Southern California. Shvartzberg Carrió’s research focuses on histories and theories of architecture and geopolitics, particularly how architectural technologies and territorial infrastructures mediate regimes of settler colonial violence, racial capitalism, and decolonial futures.
