Alessandro Petti is an architect and researcher in urbanism based in Bethlehem, and is a research fellow on the Forensic Architecture project. He is the director of the program “Campus in Camps” at Al Quds University, an experimental educational program hosted in the Dheisheh refugee camp (Bethlehem) and director of the architectural studio and art residency DAAR (Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency), which combines discourse, spatial intervention, and collective learning. DAAR projects have been shown in various museums and biennales around the world. He has written on the emerging spatial order dictated by the paradigm of security and control (Arcipelaghi e enclave, Mondadori, 2007), and developed with DAAR a series of propositions for the subversion, reuse, profanation, and recycling of structures of domination and control (Architecture After Revolution, Sternberg Press, 2013).
