Architecture-Writing: Experimental Approaches is a two-day workshop and symposium that aims to explore the practice of architecture-writing as a legitimate mode of engaging in design practice research. We will discuss as well as experiment with writing as a spatio-temporal and critical form of design practice, which engages individual as well as collective voices, and employs old and new technologies of dissemination. Some of the approaches we will engage will include: writing as a form of critical and creative practice or ‘ficto-criticism’; writing as a provocation to (political) action or how to write a manifesto; writing from, with, and for minoritarian voices; writing and the limits of legibility or expanding what writing can do; writing as site-writing and place-making.

Arranged by Architecture in Effect – Rethinking the Social in Architecture.
Hosted by Critical Studies in Architecture, KTH School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
Convenors: Hélène Frichot ( and Katja Grillner(
