6° : Organizing as Architectural Labor presented by Materials & Applications
“Organizing as Architectural Labor” brings together four architectural coalitions, Architecture Lobby, Another Possible Imaginary (API), Dark Matter University (DMU), and New Architecture Writers (NAW) to address organizing as an invisible form of labor in architecture. Speakers Quilian Riano (Architecture Lobby), Jonathan Crisman (API/QNA), Thomas Aquilina (NWAW), Mira Henry and A.L. Hu (DMU)will speak to contemporary practices that emergent architects are undertaking to address systemic racism in architecture.
Moderated by M&A Director Jia Yi Gu, the conversation will address how architects are deploying skills of organizing, group-building, and care-taking in a long term manner, building new social and political infrastructures and modeling new systems of care for architectural practice across all sites including in cultural practice, pedagogy, and professional sectors.
This program is oriented towards emergent and latent organizers who are interested in building alternative infrastructures to support the many labors that are not visible nor adequately rewarded in architecture, including teaching, writing, caring, and critiquing.
