On the Violence and Pacification of Infrastructures


While various forms of infrastructure have existed since the earliest human settlements, one thinks of the impressive sluices in ancient Harappa, the broad avenues lined with drainage ditches in Han Dynasty Chang-An, or the majestic Roman aqueduct in Segovia figure 1, the word did not come into common usage until the mid 19th century, coincident with the increasingly violent practices of building railroads, sewers, and highways. During the 1860s Baron Haussmann, using surgical metaphors, “disemboweled” the dense Medieval fabric of Paris to make his broad planted boulevards and vaulted sewers, while sections of London were blown to bits to produce the world’s first underground rail system. The imperative for efficient, fast, and hygienic services, for the movement of vehicles, water, and waste, resulted in ruthless damage to the land and the urban dwellers. To build one mile of the American freeway, for instance, required scraping away 40 acres, often plowing through virgin land or poor neighborhoods. “Road kill” was coined as a euphemistic expression referring to the carcasses of helpless animals inadvertently slaughtered by speeding cars. To use the same moniker for the social and natural life that has been endangered through building infrastructures - consider for instance the average of 100 human deaths per day by automobile accident during the past 80 years in the US - may sound slightly cynical, yet it perfectly conveys the cycle of violence that goes into the production and use of infrastructure.
... ...
It is doubtful that the aggressive attitudes exercised during the 20th century for ever faster, more dominant infrastructures, can ever be completely tamed. But in the aftermath, while we await the consequences of Climate Change we may start opting for softer, greener, slower infrastructures that improve social life while correcting ecological offenses. Otherwise we are doomed to the fate of the characters in J.G. Ballard’s novel Crash, who become fetishistic voyeurs of the destructive capacity of infrastructures, waiting with their eyes fixed to the road for the next big accident. Le Corbusier, despite all of his propaganda for destructive infrastructure, had an epiphany while visiting Istanbul as a young man, learning the dictum: ‘when you build a street plant a tree.’ We should take this further and demand a forest!

Toward a Bright Future of Urban Infrastructure


For too long, urban infrastructure blighted our cities, as their utilitarian purposes monopolized their reason for existing. As a result, with the exception of airport terminals, our urban infrastructure borrowed from the aesthetics of bunkers, tombs, sheds, and any enclosure in which light was not permitted in, nor emitted out. Now, with a more comprehensive understanding of cities, and a solid determination not to repeat the mistakes of the past, architects are finding new ways to revolutionize the appeal of urban infrastructure with light. From basic bus stations, to elaborate seaside terminals, and warm train stations, to safe parking complexes, architects are using light to turn these unwanted but necessary structures, into appealing works of civic architecture. In this article, 15 urban architecture projects were subdivided based on function, looking at how each project is enhanced by light. Similarities and differences were found across all projects in how each benefitted from more light. In certain projects, light is used as a tool for warmth and safety. In one instance, light is used to enliven spirits, and in another, used to infuse a space with energy. In other projects, light is enhanced by the lightness of structure. In every case, light is used to raise the appeal of urban infrastructure, with the architects describing the desired outcomes.
