Fake Industries Architectural Agonism + University of Technology Sydney

New York, United States; Sydney, Australia

Fake Industries Architectural Agonism (FKAA) is an entity of variable boundaries and questionable taste that provides architectural tools to mediate between citizens and institutions, the public sphere, and disciplinary knowledge. Created by Cristina Goberna and Urtzi Grau from their headquarters in New York, Sydney, and Barcelona, FKAA bridges professional and academic worlds in an effort to reclaim the architect’s role as a public intellectual—that is, someone who earnestly risks his or her credibility to question hegemonic beliefs. FKAA is currently completing the Velodrome of Medellín, the Superphosphates! Masterplan in Cáceres, and the OE House in Barcelona.
