Benedict Singleton

  • Benedict Singleton describes himself as a strategist with a background in design and philosophy. He is the author of the forthcoming book The Long Con, an alternative history of design, and regularly writes on the politics and philosophy of technology for publications including Architectural Design and E-Flux. He has lectured at the Architectural Association, the Royal College of Art, the Bartlett School of Architecture, and internationally. His 2013 essay for E-Flux on space travel, Maximum Jailbreak, considers the earth as a trap, and asserts that the common project of philosophy, economics and design should be the formulation of the means to escape from it."
