The next session is on November 21 @ 12PM MST


“Why does art historical research inform us about the sexual orientation of artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, but architectural historians rarely mention the homosexuality of architects who were active in the past? Why does architectural history remain silent when art history is so valuable?”

With these questions, Voigt and Bersan begin to challenge the queer space within the architectural realm. When space is designed to comfort a specific gender/genders, unwelcome sexual orientations will know. Others may not notice, understand, or feel it, but those excluded will know; they are not welcome. We, as designers, have to stop the one-sided built environment and gradually bring in gender diversity to stop isolating people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity(ies).


Stay tuned for updates!
