The Architectures of Alterity: Body, Media and Space symposium

This symposium aims to summon, establish and expand an active research community across GW4 institutions and beyond, plant seeds for critical connections with socially and culturally estranged communities and reflect on ways that architecture can foster their creative power and resilience. As such, it:

  • invites researchers that explore alterity from diverse disciplinary perspectives, to share theoretical and methodological frameworks and discuss seminal case studies
  • produces the yeast for creating an online and free-to-access repository that shares relevant content and supports academics’, designers’, and educators’ engagement with projects of alterity in the built environment
  • generates opportunities for a dedicated academic journal issue on these themes
  • supports discussions on future projects and ways to fund and sustain future action
