Forensic Architecture (FA) is a research agency, based at Goldsmiths, University of London, investigating human rights violations including violence committed by states, police forces, militaries, and corporations. FA’s investigations employ pioneering techniques in spatial and architectural analysis, open-source investigation, digital modelling, and immersive technologies, as well as documentary research, situated interviews, and academic collaboration.

The Museum of Finnish Architecture’s Studio presents Forensic Architecture’s video documentary Outsourcing Risk: Ali Enterprises Factory Fire (2018). A total of 259 people died when the Ali Enterprises textile factory in Karachi, Pakistan, was gutted by fire on 11 September 2012. The video shows how Forensic Architecture carried out an architectural analysis of the fire.
