Evening Appetiser: Experimental Architectural Writing



Anna Kate Blair




The written word can expand our relationships with architecture, going beyond description to dramatize and unpack forces, such as memory, emotion and politics, that shape our experiences of a space. In this session, which emphasises process over product, participants will be introduced to creative strategies to expand architectural and literary practice, including sensual and structural responses to buildings, site-specific writing and using language to challenge commoditisation of the built environment.
