Léopold Lambert is a French architect and writer currently living in New York. His work is based on an attempted balance between design and writing, each of those informing the other one. His main research investigates the inherent political violence carried by architecture through its physicality and its potential use in the context of a resistive struggle against a dominant order. The first ‘chapter’ of this research has been collected in the form of a book, entitled Weaponized Architecture: The Impossibility of Innocence (dpr-barcelona, 2012.). More chapters will follow in the coming months through printed publications. These formal chapters are to be understood as the articulation of ideas developed on the Funambulist on a quasi-daily basis.
