Trans-Bodies / Queering Spaces
Robert Gorny & Dirk van den Heuvel (Eds.)
The newest addition to the Delft University of Technology (the netherlands) architecture and urban research journal Footprint 21–Vol.11/2 introduces the latest developments in the field of queer theory into the realm of architecture and urban design—and vice versa, it makes architectural and urban design concerns an element of queer studies. Next to uncovering hidden or repressed histories and practices as part of an agenda of inclusiveness, Footprint 21 considers an introduction of queer theory to architecture as engendering a radical reconceptualization of the architectural discipline—to challenge and replace any conception of architecture as an embodiment of essentialist identities, forms or types, in order to move toward an understanding of architecture as a practice engaged in consistent transformation. Contributions by Dirk van den Heuvel and Robert Alexander Gorny, Xenia Kokoula, Athina Angelopoulou, Tim Gough, Daniel Snyder, Andreas Angelidakis, Colin Ripley, Joel Sanders, and interview with Brady Burroughs, Katarina Bonnevier, Katja Grillner, and Hélène Frichot.
