To write a room - to write about a room
Together with architect Julie Barfod, Kari Anne K. Drangsland and Anders Rubing from SKOK are hosting a three-day course on writing at Bergen School of Architecture (BAS).
What does writing mean to us as architects? What space can the text provide?
This cross-course is about writing and the relationship between writing and bodily and spatial presence. The course is based on different critical writing traditions, such as critical spatial writing, situated feminist writing, and architectural criticism.
Together with the students we aim to examine what a writing architecture practice might be. The course will provide an introduction to writing in relation to space, time, and body, and will alternate between writing exercises and bodily ways of investigating space.
The three course leaders have approached space and time through writing in different ways and write very different texts, such as experimental spatial essays, music lyrics, academic texts, and architectural criticism. No previous writing experience is required to participate in the course. It is possible to write in both English and Norwegian.
The course takes place on 22-24 February 2023 and is for students at BAS.
