Eyal Weizman is an Israel-born architect, theorist, and activist who works under the conceptual umbrella of forensic architecture. This term is also the name of a research project at Goldsmiths, University of London, that has assembled a team of researchers from disciplines ranging from architecture to film and archaeology, to gather evidence that can help shed light on complex situations in contexts of armed conflict war, and use it in legal proceedings.

SON[I]A talks to Eyal Weizman about the basic principles of forensic architecture, its practical applications, and its links to the world of art and creation.
