Quarantine and Containment

November 2013

David Garcia’s vital ethics
Architect Léopold Lambert engaged David Garcia of MAP Architects in serious conversation about the architecture of quarantine and containment. The former had a ploy, which was to produce a good podcast (which he did), and to write this article. Mixing Lambert’s notions of the subject matter with Garcia’s hands-on experience at its very heart, made for a rich discussion. Luckily, we are now able to reap its many and various fruits.
