Abstract / Description of output

Embracing a critical pedagogy of care and support in the teaching and learning environment of the architectural design studio, this essay discusses ways in which architecture can be reimagined via infrastructural love. By exploring infrastructural support systems we seek other ways of situating architectural design amidst contemporary environmental, social, and political crises. We have undertaken this work in collaboration with architectural design students by deploying a feminist ethics of care that combines interdisciplinary theories and practices. Our essay unfolds as an infrastructural rhythm of instructional prompts. In conclusion we present a concept that emerged from our studio: poetics pragmatics.
