Addis Abeba Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Ethiopia by BC Architects

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: BC Architects

The creation of urban potential – through architecture, and the quest for a glocal architecture

Urbanism, in common perception, comes before architecture: urbanism creates potential by generating conditions to orchestrate the city’s latter architectural objects. Urbanism is a very generous way of thinking, since a lot is left open, whereas architecture is a more selfish discipline, which uses up the potential generated by others. In some rapidly changing cities of the global south though, urbanism doesn’t necessarily happen before architecture: it coincides in time.
