Abstract

'The Glimmer of Other Worlds' was first written for the Alternate Currents conference at the University of Sheffield in Autumn 2007. It was prompted by my experiences as a teacher attempting to explain to students what the idea of an alternative to capitalist architectural and building production might mean. It struck me that one way to address this was to ask a series of questions that are typical of the kind I have been confronted with over the years. Each question and answer is accompanied by an image and preceded by an excerpt from a series of stories I am writing on the spatial dynamics of the Russian Revolution.
