Forensic Architecture

Forensic Architecture (FA) is an investigative research agency based at Goldsmiths, University of London. FA’s investigations employ pioneering techniques in spatial analysis, open source investigation, digital modelling, immersive technologies, situated testimony, and machine learning. FA work ranges across topics including drone warfare, police violence, border regimes, cybersurveillance, and environmental violence. FA’s findings are presented to the public through video reports, media partnerships, web platforms, and major gallery exhibitions. FA pursues accountability with and alongside the communities experiencing repression and human rights violations, by putting technical expertise at their service. 

Since its founding in 2010, FA has published work on more than a dozen cases in Palestine and Israel, investigating police killings, airstrikes, herbicidal warfare, land dispossession, and cybersurveillance. Its work has been presented in Israeli courts, and cited by the UN and the International Criminal Court and has caused the Israeli state to respond and, in some instances, issue retractions. Cases FA has researched include:
