BiographieNagy Makhlouf graduated in architecture from ENSA Paris-Malaquais and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the ALICE laboratory at EPFL. His architectural research seeks to make tangible and legible the entanglement of long-lasting debt policies, urban regulations, and the built environment, focusing on American family homes from 1913 to the present day, notably on New Haven and its suburbia. The research investigates how the Federal Reserve system, the fiat monetary standard, and consequent public policies have imposed a closed-ended, wasteful, and discriminatory urban operating system: a "fiatscape." Firstly, the research seeks to decode the invisible legal and financial structures that underlie it, then provide tools for recoding them to economize resources and empower its residents.
