BRAVE NEW NOW
What happens when architecture becomes purely a vehicle for the creation of capital?
GOM is a city built by the forces of the market. People question where it is and if it exists at all, but everyone acknowledges the trillionaires it gives rise to, and the wealth that GOM traders have amassed by building speculatively, buying and selling space in the city as commodity to be profited from.
GOM is sited in a context between the fiction of money, architecture's perceived value within society through the mediated image, and the Naughties.
