Queerly Political Architectural Practices
October 26th, 6PM (San Juan Time)
@ZOOM, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign School of Architecture
My “Queerly Political Architectural Practices” is part of the lecture series at the School of Architecture at the University of Illiniois Urbana-Champagin. In this lecture I present fragments of my current work exploring architecture and urban space through the lens of queerness. I will discuss the ways in which queerness subverts as well as highlights Puerto Rican spatial politics, particularly looking at San Juan as a case study.
Some projects I’ll be discussing:
Memorial for Alexa
Buildings, Bodies, and Broken Hearts
The lecture asks: How can we queer architectural research and research queer architectures? What are the some of the spatial politics of queerness in San Juan, Puerto Rico? And can a queering of architectural representation bring forth new imaginaries and opportunities?
Open to all. Register in advance for this meeting here.
