"Architects today are rethinking their tools to address the complex problems at hand. They are also enlarging their table to include around it other professionals and citizens." - Hashim Sarkis Expansions, edited by Hashim Sarkis and Ala Tannir, gathers over 80 responses to the question posed by the Biennale Architettura 2021's theme - How will we live together? These contributions act as an extension to the different thematics presented by participants in the galleries in Venice. Assembling the voices and views of authors from various fields associated with architecture - academics, curators, journalists, students, and more - this volume includes a collection of short essays that reveal recurring themes that are currently of interest to different architecture and design communities around the world. These include multispecies worlding, social and economic justice, the history of twentieth-century modern spatial practices, environmental concerns, public modes of transportation, as well as examinations and contestations of the digital/analog binary, among others. The graphic design and the layout of the volume are by Omnivore, Inc. Also available: Cohabitats ISBN 9788836648603
