Author(s): Georg Rafailidis

In his book Reassembling the Social, Bruno Latour suggests a simple thoughtexperiment to test the relevance and agency of everyday objects in theconstitution of larger networks and uses everyday examples such as nails, kettlesand speedbumps. We can add buildings to this list of everyday objects, too. CaféFargo is a project that follows this line of thought.
