What Is Queer (About) Architecture?
More than two decades ago, Aaron Betsky opened the debate about gender identities and architecture with his important book Queer Space. Architecture and Same-Sex Desire. There and in this essay, he shows that the history of architecture and design is rich with built examples of queer spaces, which question the stability of a hetero-normative society. But while reflecting on a planet in crisis, he wonders if the queer space-discourse could offer alternative approaches. Read Aaron Betsky's essay in architheses current Queer-issue.
