Tim presented a speech at the 14th Annual Porcupine Freedom Festival (Porcfest), titled “Private Ownership of Public Space in Post-State Cities.” He addressed three key questions:
1. What is “public space” and why should libertarians care about it?
2. How can public use be preserved under private ownership?
3. How can state owned spaces be divested into private ownership?
This episode features a brief discussion about Porcfest, and the full recording of Tim’s speech.
Tim Brochu, co-host of Anarchitecture Podcast, will be presenting at the Free State Project’s 14th Annual Porcupine Freedom Festival (PorcFest) in New Hampshire!
Tim’s speech, entitled “Private Ownership of Public Space in Post-State Cities,” will be at 10:00 AM, Friday June 23rd in the Creating Communities tent. See below for a synopsis of his speech.
Tim is also sponsoring PorcFest on behalf of his new architecture practice, Adra Architecture. Adra Architecture offers a broad range of architectural services to residential, commercial, and healthcare clients in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
Tim will create his own piece of public space, the “Adra Lounge,” in PorcFest’s Agora Village. If you make it to PorcFest, be sure to stop by to meet Tim, discuss Anarchitecture, view a portfolio of his work, and learn more about Adra Architecture’s services.
The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 participants to move to New Hampshire by 2021, working toward “the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of individuals’ rights to life, liberty, and property.”
See you at PorcFest!
“Public property” and “public space” are often misconstrued as describing the same thing, implying that if public property were privatized then public space would be eliminated.
I have decided to start my own architecture practice, called Adra Architecture, offering a broad range of architectural services to residential, commercial, and healthcare clients in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
In Anarchitecture Podcast Episode ana006: Citizen of Nowhere | Part 1: Tim’s Abroad Life, I talked about how I had left my career of thirteen years with one of northern New England’s premier architecture firms to be a stay-at-home dad traveling the world with my young family for nearly two years.
I have written a post on my Adra Architecture Blog that describes how this life-altering experience convinced me to take on this exciting new venture, along with the travel story that inspired the name “Adra:”

Tim and Joe review Anarchitecture’s interview with Patrik Schumacher, Director of Zaha Hadid Architects (Episode #ana011), to clarify and highlight key points. We elaborate on topics including historical architectural styles, computer-generated design, parametric urbanism, and the challenges of promoting radical ideas.
Tim interviews Patrik Schumacher, Director of Zaha Hadid Architects, at the Zaha Hadid Design Gallery in London. Topics include:
This is the first in a series of four episodes about Patrik Schumacher, Director of Zaha Hadid Architects, one of the world’s premier architecture firms. Patrik is also an author, professor, lecturer, and architectural theorist.
In November 2016, Patrik gave a presentation at the World Architecture Festival promoting libertarian and even anarcho-capitalist solutions to London’s housing crisis. In the midst of the media maelstrom that followed, Tim wrote a blog post, presented in this episode, that defined anarcho-capitalism and defended Patrik’s proposals.
Then things got interesting…
