  • Summary: Eighteen or 65 years, 50 years of quotation, three months of maternity leave, three years of bachelor’s degree, 40 hours a week, eight hours a day, two-hour data downloads, 15 minutes or five hours from the city. Time, in this context, not only selects the dissected measure of seconds, minutes, or years, but also provides the syntax through which contemporary architecture and urban structure structure structure the specific spatio-temporals of cities, buildings, inhabitants and their ways of life. As a result, the increasing desynchronization of space and a continuous synchronization of time are shaping the diversity of our lives while widening the differences between those who can and cannot share market speed. In this article, the conflict of synchronicity will be made visible within contemporary cities through the notions of heterogeneity (chronopolitical), power (synchropolitics), repetition (rhythmmolytic) and speed (acceleration of politics) as a emerging field of action to be explored by architects. , artists or designers.
  • Abstract: Eighteen or 65 years old, 50 years of contributions, three months maternity leave, three-year degrees, 40 hours a week, eight hours a day, two-hour data downloads, 15 minutes away or five hours from the city. Time, in this context, does not just appoint the dissected measure of seconds, minutes or years but provides the syntaxes through which contemporary architecture and urbanism structure the specific spatio-temporal- ities of cities, buildings, inhabitants and their ways of living. Consequently, the increasing desynchronisation of space and an ongoing synchronisation of time are shaping a process that erodes the diversity of our lives and simultaneously expands the differences between those who can and cannot share the market velocity. In this article, the conflict of synchronicity will be made visible within contemporary cities through the notions of heterogeneity (chronopolitics), power (syncropolitics), repetition (rhythmpolitics) and speed (acceleratiopolitics) action to be explored by architects, artists or designers.
