Critical Studies Design Studio Presentation

On Friday August 27th M.Arch Studios for 2010/11 is presented at KTH. Critical Studies Design Studio engages in critical and feminist strategies for the production of architecture and design. Subversive and dialogical design and research practices are applied to specific themes and/or locations in the four courses: Feminist Design Tools, Dialogical Interventions, Participatory Mapping, and Altering Practices. Throughout the design projects and in our seminars we engage in the notion of an altering practice, both in terms of understanding the change of existing conditions that each architectural project can bring about, and in terms of understanding how one’s own future practice as an architect can be conducted in such away as to actively engage in social transformation.
