While monetary capital has always placed a significant role in determining the built environment, recent shifts in the character of global finance have resulted in a new relationship between investment practices and buildings. The growth of capital leads to affects in architecture and urbanism. New York City for example has 12 percent of its housing market vacant. How can architecture take on this issue and be more in alignment of or critique architecture formed global capital markets?
