Working Towards a Pluriversity: progressive conversations, NOT solutions
In light of recent events, such as George Floyd’s death, we have granted ourselves the liberation of being able to address the idea of race and thus the realisation of how evident it is that change needs to happen. Shaunee Lyn Tan explores further.
This essay explores the unconscious bias we hold towards race, space, and the ecological disaster. As a profession we design buildings, but more importantly we design the spaces within and around these buildings. If these are not inviting to all social and identity groups, then we have failed in creating somewhere safe and inclusive. I write as to locate my thoughts and experiences within the wider context of spaces which I occupy and systems which I partake in – looking specifically at how this change can begin with architectural education.
