ARCH+ The Great Repair: Politics for a Society of Repair— A Reader

The modern capitalist era, with its emphasis on growth and progress and an economic system based on consumption, wastage, and resources being bled dry, has led to the ruthless exploitation of people and nature. As a counter to this, ‘The Great Repair’ project puts forward the idea of a repair society centred on practices of care, maintenance, and mending.

The publication ‘The Great Repair. The Politics of the Repair Society. A Reader’ presents a theoretical introduction to the project, which arose as a collaboration between ARCH+, the Akademie der Künste, Berlin, the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich, and the Department of Geography and Spatial Planning at the University of Luxembourg.
