Race Conditions: an exploration of the spatial operations of whiteness

This is a working exploration of architecture’s complicity in whiteness and racism. Inspired by the work of writers and scholars such as Wendy Leo Moore, Joyce Bell, Claudia Rankine, George Lipsitz, Elijah Anderson, Katherine McKittrick, Adrienne Brown, Dianne Harris, Craig Wilkins, and Rashad Shabazz, among others, we’re hoping to contribute to theorizations of how space itself facilitates racism.

Frames: seeing colorblind racism in architectural design

In our practices and our teaching, we conceptualize space as colorblind. We render those spaces as white, hegemonic, and normative. And we disengage when those spaces sustain racism. This exhibit is an exploration of architecture’s role in perpetuating forms of racism. We share our thoughts through a series of images and texts that lead to a space for reflection and contribution. We hope that you will borrow and share material to help us, collectively, think more clearly about colorblind racism in architecture.
