This is the blog of Lindsay Bremner, set up to record intersections between architecture, geology and politics. It is interested in architecture as geological form(ul)ation, in the political life of geo-architecture and in the history of geological thought in architecture. It is a vehicle for recording and disseminating work being undertaken through research, field work and teaching at the University of Westminster, London, UK.

  3. Dear Lindsay: I hope you’re well. I was reading the website for this exhibition, and thought you might be interested in the artist, Allan Sekula, whom you may already know. I worked with him on two projects in the 90s, and he was an advisor (along with you) on the “The world in my street” project at Temple. https://frieze.com/gallery/thyssen-bornemisza-art-contemporary?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=Culture%20Bulletin%20Mar%2031

    Dear Lindsey,
    I’m writing a textbook entitled “Essentials of Modern Communications” to be published by Wiley. I need your permission to reproduce the map of undersea (submarine) fiber-optic cables created by Ben Pollock. This map is shown here.

    I’d like to e-mail the official request from Wiley, where the requested figure is shown. Kindly return it to me via e-mail at your earliest convenience.
    I’d greatly appreciate your collegial assistance.
    Thank you,
    Professor Djafar Mynbaev
