Disturbing landscapes / deforming identities

Karli Luik

We're all victims of the architect - architecture is the only art that you can't help but feel. And every architect is a dictator stimulationg some sensations and hindering others.
Architecture is a form of politics performed directily to bodies. By deforming lanscapes, building obstacles and creating spaces we always deform and change the identities of the users. In this way architecture is never nice nor beautiful but rather an obscure matter striving to fulfill someones obsessions.
In the phd I want to find my inner dictator and find out if there a solid ideology behind my designs. Which are the aspects of identity I want to suppress and which are the ones I seem to foster?
