The Architecture of Loss: RCA MRes x Architecture Foundation
24 June 2020 | 5.30pm 6.30pm
This event will be live streamed via Zoom.
What is the relationship between architecture and loss? How can loss be understood as a mechanism that is distributed unequally across intersections of race, ability, sexuality, gender, geography and class? How is loss spatialised? How does ritual figure in the history of urban loss? What is the relationship between urban change, memory, ritual, loss and grief? Organised by the MRes RCA: Architecture students at the Royal College of Art.
