The third Parlour Reading Room considers the built environment through a feminist lens, with a focus on accessibility and the importance of noticing the “diverse perceptions and experiences of occupying built space”, as Jos Boys puts it.
Maryam Gusheh and Sara Chesterman to reflect on the ideas discussed and their lived experiences in the built environment. Watch the recording via our Vimeo on Demand channel.
Accessibility within the built environment and built environment disciples is explored through Jos Boys’ essay, “The Disordinary architecture project”, Judith Butler’s walking conversation with Sanuara Taylor, David Gissen’s essay, “Why are There so Few Disabled Architects and Architecture Students?” and Anna Leahy’s essay, “The Universal Design Ideal”.
Engage with the recommended reading, get together with your reading group to discuss the ideas using our facilitation prompts and watch the video to explore these ideas with Maryam Gusheh and Sara Chesterman!
