Abstract

This article reexamines the Narkomfin Social Condenser not as a discrete architectural form but as one of a series of many iterations that must be taken into consideration as an emerging whole over time and in multiple registers. The apparent failure of a given iteration at any one point of time detracts from the productive power of such ‘failures’ over time whose reiterative force not only attests to the power of the Social Condenser as a principle but also ensures its ability to enact its benevolent social promise over many years and in various forms.
