Simone Brott is an architect, writer and critic, and Coordinator of Architectural Design at Queensland University of Technology. She has a Masters of Architecture from Yale University and PhD in Architecture from The University of Melbourne. Her books include Architecture for a Free Subjectivity: Deleuze and Guattari at the Horizon of the Real and Architecture Post Mortem: The Diastolic Architecture of Decline, Dystopia, and Death (New editions, Routledge, 2016). A regular contributor to Log: Observations on Architecture and the City (New York), her writings have also appeared in AD Architectural Design (London); Thresholds: Journal of the MIT Department of Architecture; Architectural Theory Review: Journal of the Department of Architecture, The University of Sydney; and the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism. Brott has recently completed a new book Digital Monuments: The Dreams and Abuses of Iconic Architecture, an acerbic critique of iconic architecture and the hijacking of the public imagination by the digital image in the contemporary city. She is working on a second project, the Financialisation of iconic Architecture, which examines the transformation of architecture into a financial instrument and the increasing role of financial institutions in cities. Her third project, Le Corbusier and Fascism investigated recent allegations of Le Corbusier’s fascism and the attendant scandal in France, in which she continues to play a public role. Brott has lectured internationally at Yale University, Harvard University, Boston University, University of Michigan, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Strathclyde University, Glasgow, and The University of Melbourne.
