Architectural Review April 2020


In this issue we look to what happens in the dark, from sleep to dancing to all varieties of shady behaviour. For a discipline so focused on the visual, absolute darkness can be a difficult subject – but for many, the colour black remains a gainly aesthetic and symbolic tool. Life in the shadows can be subversive if marginal, and in a culture of ever-increasing surveillance, these unseen pockets might become the last bastion of resistance.
