Evening Appetiser: Experimental Architectural Writing
Anna Kate Blair
Summary: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.
Please note: this event will take place at MPavilion, in Queen Victoria Gardens, St Kilda Road.
