New-Territories is a polymorphous architecture organisation. Founded in 1993, it has embraced different labels, names, strategies and purposes. New-Territories is fronted by the androgynous, trans-gender avatar, _S/he_, who authorised Francois Roche to write, talk and teach on his/her behalf, as a PS / personal secretary, an Ariadne’s wire of this ectoplasmic system and paranoiac mind. New-Territories seeks to articulate the real and/or fictional, geographic situations and narrative structures that can transform them, with technology, robotic and human natures, physiological and psychological.
