Planning for Protest came about as a conversation over what was happening in the flashpoints of mass protests throughout in the streets of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas, with a special focus on how the very spaces in which protests took place helped to shape or form, if not circumvent, the success or failure of each cities’ public mobilization. 12 architects/architecture offices from different cities thought clearly of what they saw in their streets as these protests rose and grew. From this, 12 different typologies of where, why, and how we protest formed. Architects’ contributions show each protest as a unique moment that transpires when collective spirit fills the time-worn arteries of urban planning. The contributors offer their own proposals on what we can best make of what we already have. Their ideas exist as stratagems for future modes of protests. Planning for Protest is upon face value a project documenting architecture’s role in how protests come to shape themselves.
