MMeets — Experimental Architectural Writing
Wed Mar 22 2023 at 06:30 pm to 07:30 pm
MPavilion | Melbourne, VI
About this Event
How can language expand our relationship with architecture? Engage the senses and learn to consider the unseen but significant forces, such as memory, emotion and politics, that shape different experiences of a space.
Join us for this workshop facilitated by Anna Kate Blair from Writers Victoria to explore a range of creative literary techniques and strategies designed to expand both your architectural and literary practice.
Emphasising process over product, you’ll look at a history of imaginative responses to architecture, and be invited to share your own ideas and experiments.
