Initial Thesis Abstract: Albion, 1979

The end of the decade of 1970s in England was a turning point towards a new political, social, economic and cultural paradigm that would radically change the way the city was experienced and architecture was thought. The remaining ruins of a dismantled heavy industry become the place to experiment with new kinds of production based on social relations. The thesis will examine how these new conditions produce a new body liberated of manual labour and surrendered to total leisure consumption; a re-eroticized body that will be placed in the centre of the architectural experience redefining its materials, tempos and status.
