Kapital Architecture: Commodity

An event hosted by LSE Cities in partnership with London Festival of Architecture

Architectural production involves the assemblage of multiple materials, processes and techniques. When did these pieces that make up architectural form become commodified? This discussion looked to the history of proprietary specifications in architectural production and the impacts this has had on the role of the architect in the post-war period, and today.
