KAPITAL ARCHITECTURE

Kapital Architecture is a four-part public debate series exploring architecture through the lens of the 2014 London Festival of Architecture theme: Capital. It runs 3, 12, 19 and 28 June.

The series adopts four key words to examine architectural practice through its historical and contemporary relationship with capital: Circulation, Labour, the Commodity, and Accumulation.

It is convened by Adam Kaasa, Research Fellow at the RCA and organised by the School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art and When We Build Again in collaboration with Legion TV and LSE Cities, for the 2014 London Festival of Architecture.
