Alejandro Zaera-Polo is co-founder of Foreign Office Architects in London. Zaera-Polo’s architectural theories and architecture practice are based on the building volume – the envelope. He describes the envelope as the most relevant element of architecture because it best expresses the link between technology, representation and politics.
