Queer Histories in Architecture is part of our contemporary reflections series The Art of Living: Bodily Experiences of Space, Curated by Kristen J. Owens.
The Art of Living: Bodily Experiences of Space is a four-part contemporary reflections series organized in conjunction with the exhibition Eileen Gray and inspired by the ways in which Gray’s architectural and interior designs were created with the individual’s bodily experience of the space in mind.
This workshop with J.D. Sassaman and Mariel Villeré will respond to a history of queer world-building and explore the idea of queering a space through appropriation and object-making. We will explore historical typologies and collaboratively draw new spatial concepts through conversation, images, and three dimensional construction. While hands-on, the workshop requires no previous design or craft experience and is open to all ages and abilities.
