Ed Soja

February 5, 1997 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Ed Soja attempts to make sense of contemporary Los Angeles and to document the emergence of spatial thinking and geographical imagination. He analyzes the term “restructuring,” identifying it as a concrete process. Soja frames Los Angeles as an image of American cities as a whole. Soja proposes “Third Space,” an alternative critical spatial awareness in which everything social, historical, imagined, experienced, and spatial comes together. He discusses the precedence of the spatial imagination over the historical imagination in contemporary architectural education. Soja critiques thinking about space as material form, stressing the importance of imagined space.
