In the early 1980's Michel Foucault was pressed by Paul Rabinow in the interview subsequently held under the title Space, Knowledge, and Power (1984) to take a position as to whether architecture as a practice could claim to exert the power of space. Concluding that “the three great variables-territory, communication, and speed … escape the domain of architects.” Today, with the double progression of body and brain, or the analysis of bio-politics expanded to noo-politics, this conclusion will be respectfully challenged and re-framed.
