About Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory
The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory is an architectural think-tank that works on the intersection between architecture, planning, and human rights. FAST seeks to improve the quality of the built environment and people’s livelihoods in conflict areas.

FAST was born from an idea to spark interest and discussion about how political powers use architecture and architects to implement ideological agendas. FAST’s director Malkit Shoshan believes that “Architecture does not happen by itself; it has a legislative, social, economic, political and ideological context.”

FAST is a Curry Stone Foundation Social Design Circle Honoree. Read more about it here.
