PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES
This year’s public program invites designers, curators and practitioners whose work takes methods of design as a starting point from which to shape architectural practice and pedagogy otherwise. If conventional methods in architecture have served as a relay between the practices of architecture and the institutions and structures of its materialization, then methods inherited are a means to ensure the reproduction of a certain world—a certain way of being that we've long known to be untenable. 'Other methods’ is an invitation to see how methods might offer a point from which to upend this. How can methods of design become articulations of other worlds, propositions for other ways of being that undo environmental racism and the enclosure and destruction of the natural world; that break the ongoing coloniality of human inhabitation; that thwart the organized production of surplus populations needed to fuel capital’s limitless growth? How might other methods, thought from the ground up, offer tools for insurgent practices to begin building different worlds?
