Join us for the sixth talk in RIBA's Architecture Anew talk series, a season of RIBA + VitrA talks, bringing people together to discuss new ideas about the role of architecture in designing a more sustainable future.
What is eco-feminism and how could it relate to architecture? This conversation will use this question as a starting point to further explore co-housing as a possible model for eco-feminist practice in architecture, addressing the role architects can play in creating low-impact and gender-equal homes.
The decisions we make about how live, clean and eat at home can have significant impacts on our individual carbon footprints. Can living communally further lower our environmental impact whilst additionally subverting traditional gender roles through the sharing of domestic labour and care?
