The range of actions deployed by design professions have seldom entered the debate regarding the relationship between city, rights, and powers. The legitimacy of design actions, though, undergoes the same fragmentation that, in a complementary fashion, questions both the credibility of physical limits in defining what a city is as well as the universal validity of the rights that are spatially defined by such limits.
Can the project of architecture transfer a system of general values and rights within a specific action of spatial transformation? Does the project of architecture have the power of dialoguing with the juridical foundation of space? Can the design of space still be the tool through which to reframe narratives, democracy and rights? Is it possible to unhinge the segregated system of rights through the action of the project?
