Failed Architecture is a podcast on architecture and the real world. By opening up new perspectives on the built environment, we seek to explore the meaning of architecture in contemporary society. FA challenges dominant spatial fashions and explores alternative realities, reaching far beyond the architectural community. We combine personal stories with research and reflection, always remaining committed to the idea that architecture is about social justice and climate justice, pop culture and subculture, representation and imagination, and everything that happens after the building’s been built.

Perfect podcast for narratives about architecture
Great podcast! After listing to the first episode on datacentres, I was totally convinced that a podcast (verbal form) about such a visual field as architecture makes total sense. Looking forward to the commning episodes!
