“Queering Archecture” a lecture by Rachel Montgomery Paupeck December 11th 4pm in Cornerstone Screening Room. “What is the role of the architect and what power systems are reinforced by the very claiming of that name. This lecture will look at what happens when rigid design thinking co-mingles with queer theory and an artist’s practice. I will examine how I often frame my work through the didactic but empowering lens of basic queer theory principles: agency, proclaiming and the claiming of space, representation, and identity. I will trace this lecture’s themes and contextualize them through my architectural and installation based practice.” Rachel MONTGOMERY Paupeck holds a BA from Smith College and a M.ARCH from Rhode Island school of Design (RISD). Her professional work has been shown in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Vogue, and she has been a guest critic at Cooper Union, Columbia University & RISD.
