A Few Considerations on the Notion of Transculturation
Felipe Hernandez, lecturer in Architecture, School of Architecture, University of Liverpool

The term transculturation, coined by the Cuban anthropologist Fernando Ortiz, has been used as a generic term in order to examine issues relating to the cultural economy between peripheries and centres in general. Given the socio-political content inherent in the term transculturation, it offers ample opportunity to produce new methods of architectural analysis in order to cover the entire spectrum of architectural practices that constantly re-shape cities around the world.
