When we set out to produce this issue, we initially asked the wrong question: “where is the conversation between anthropology and architecture?” The question was wrong – or at least naive – because it imagined a discourse of science not defined by practice, but guiding it. We imagined that theorists from architecture would look at anthropology (and vice versa) and see a field sharing origins with their own, with a related but distinct set of problems and techniques, and a wealth of potential solutions to offer. Over two special issues of this journal, this exchange has revealed itself to be a possibility more latent than fulfilled.
