À propos du cours

Architecture structures our daily lives. It shapes our homes, streets, neighborhoods, cities and more. But who gets to create and occupy these spaces? In the United States, a long history of anti-Black racism has created spatial inequalities that are built into the physical environment and erased the stories of Black architects and communities. Reimagining Blackness and Architecture explores the relationship between architecture and Blackness as an identity and a lived experience. You’ll hear directly from Black artists, architects, scholars, and writers who reimagine their surroundings and highlight the ways Black makers have changed the world. You’ll see how architects are working to transform American cities into more equitable places using everything from textiles, hip hop, and fiction to spices and spaceships. And you’ll hear from an international range of artists, who create spaces for their communities and make visible the stories of Black life in their work. The course is structured around five themes: Imagination, Care, Knowledge, Refusal, and Liberation. Each week, through original films, audio interviews, and readings, you’ll expand your understanding of architecture as a practice that reaches across time, place, and form. Creative activities and prompts for reflection will encourage you to consider your own role in shaping your communities. Course image credit: Dawoud Bey.

I have absolutely no regrets on taking this course. All of the course information provided (videos, interviews, texts) were not only easy to follow and navigate but they were also very inspiring and thought provoking. There was a lot of new material that I learned from and a lot of content that motivated and inspired me as a Black woman, and also influenced my art as a visual artist. The artists and ideas presented in the course were authentic, original, and stimulating.

This is an amazing course! I am a PhD student at the University of North Texas, Information Science, Interdisciplinary Studies. My research is about African American Community Archives in Texas.

Once I took this course it opened my mind to another perspective that I am now looking at as it pertains to access to archives in institutions and the makeup of the buildings.

I really appreciate this course; I am still reviewing the materials!!!

The course was very informative and extremely thought provoking. As an architect that graduated from India, it has further deepened the realization of how education in art and architecture is heavily influenced by a racial bias, sidelining the regional as inferior or irrelevant.
