In the 1980s, the London-based feminist architects’ practice Matrix was one of the first worldwide to bring issues of gender centre-stage to the design of the built environment. Taking this women-led and collaborative platform as a starting off point, our discussions will explore some of the threads that interweave through radical and feminist design practices across generations and places, to open up different ways of working towards more inclusionary and equal practices.
These threads include:
- Changing sites and foci for social, material and spatial transformation
- Cross-connections between and across built environment education, design practice, the construction industry and community-based action
- Architecture, feminism and white privilege

Matrix’s impact is still being felt by more recent generations of students and practitioners keen to find alternatives to the Starchitects system. So we ask, what does radical and feminist architectures look like in today’s world.

Streamed live on The Bartlett School of Architecture's YouTube channel, this event will be a discussion between co-hosts Maria Venegas Rabas and Jos Boys, and speakers Torange Khonsari, Jenny Richards, Sophie Hope and Lesley Lokko.

This event forms part of The Bartlett International Lecture Series Spring 2021.
