Architecture in Effect
Volume 1: Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects / Volume 2: After Effects: Theories and Methodologies in Architectural Research
Architecture in Effect presents research on the co-constitution of architecture and the social by addressing concrete problems and forwarding explorative theories and methodologies. The socially oriented perspective of Volume #1, Rethinking the Social, edited by Sten Gromark, Jennifer Mack, Roemer van Toorn, Bettina Schwalm, Hélène Frichot, and Gunnar Sandin, is complemented by discussions of architectural and transdisciplinary theories and methodologies in Volume #2,  After Effects. Roemer van Toorn wrote the editorial introduction Rethinking the Social with Jennifer Mack and Sten Gromark, and contributed with an article and his photography on The Society of the And. Rethinking the Social.

Together these twin volumes reflect on topics such as the utopian idea of a welfare state, the role of intersubjective and non-human points of view, and the impact of historical and current images on the making of realities. The task of these books is to present a wide range of research topics that combine historical, material, and critical research approaches that respond to our current crises and challenges. Ultimately, this enables new modes of knowledge production within architecture to be advanced in its relation to societal transformation.
