On the 14th and 15th of November the CLAIMING*SPACES Conference hosted its participants and guests with a broad range of talks, discussions, workshops and performances.
About the conference
The international conference CLAIMING*SPACES. Feminist Perspectives in Architecture and Spatial Planning within the framework of ARCHDIPLOMA 2019, asked questions about the connections and dynamics that lead to a so-called leaky pipeline for women in architecture and spatial planning.
The pointing out of the lack of feminist actors and perspectives served as a starting point for the discussion. It was not only about women's difficult career opportunities, but also about whether the people who create the built environment as a group should not be as diverse as those who use it.
CLAIMING*SPACES invited students, teachers, planners and researchers from the fields of architecture and spatial planning as well as interested parties to participate in the discourse in the form of discussions, lectures and workshops and to jointly design feminist positions and tools for a different kind of architecture and spatial planning.
The conference was public & free of charge.
