Associate Professor Graham Owen publishes “'I Have No Power': Zaha Hadid and the Ethics of Globalized Practice”

March 24, 2017

Associate Professor Graham Owen has published “'I Have No Power':  Zaha Hadid and the Ethics of Globalized Practice” in Candide, the German theory and history journal published by Hatje Cantz and RWTH Aachen.  Issue 10 focuses on the theme of Architecture as a Matter of Contention.  Prof. Owen’s article examines the controversies that have arisen around Hadid’s international work, its disciplinary acclaim, the questionable conditions of its realization, and Patrik Schumacher’s efforts to provide it with theoretical justification.  The essay tackles issues of personal, political and institutional agency, biopolitics, and neoliberalism as theory.
