Decolonizing Architecture // Narrative and Architecture – Part I

Through a series of conversations, debates and workshops, 'Decolonizing Architecture' explores new and alternate forms of urbanisms that challenge the direct and indirect effects of colonialism. We seek to explore this topic to help reconstruct/restructure conventional approaches to urbanization, in an effort to dismantle inequality in our cities, and promote cultural integration/social cohesion.

Talk // Narrative and Architecture - Part I

How can literary tools be used to challenge the current urban fabric of the city? How can narration and storytelling help in the struggle to overcome colonial domination? This talk will explore the intersection of narrative, identity and architecture as an interdisciplinary interrogation and exploration of Architecture.

We hope you will be part of the conversation and join us in on our efforts to challenge traditional architectural practice and discourse, and dismantle inequality in our cities.
