Experimental Architectural Writing

Join us in exploring a range of creative techniques for engaging with structures, and in considering ways in which wordplay can expand our relationships with architecture. We will consider writing about emotion through buildings, collaborating with physical structures on writing projects and using literary techniques to resist power dynamics manifested in the built environment. In this workshop, which emphasises process over product, you will be introduced to a number of creative strategies intended to expand architectural and literary practice, looking both at the history of imaginative responses to architecture and at participants’ own ideas and experiments. In keeping with March’s theme (Knowledge—Shared Learning, Shared Power), we will emphasise experimental writing as a collaborative practice in which particular spaces, the passage of time and the thought, action or presence of other people, animals, objects or spirits can reconfigure and challenge authorship.
