The longer a protest takes, the more architectural it becomes: check out the BBC’s nifty spatial analysis of Cairo’s Tahrir Square (and both this 3D diagram by the NY Times and AlJazeera’s documentary/summary of the protests), which has become somewhat of a makeshift micro-city over the past couple of weeks. Not very often does government legislation generate physical urban transformation this fast, right?

Design as politics? More like politics as design this time.
