Abstract [en]

The project brief called for a sanctuary for mythical creatures and visitor facilities in a rural landscape in southeast Sweden, with alternating assignments of collective and individual efforts, constantly negotiating positions within critical fictions. A group of master’s level architecture students adamantly refused their roles as “the architects” and insisted on designing their entire studio project in the guise of their imaginary humanimal counterparts, voicing a strong belief in the necessity to design from the positions of the residents of the proposed sanctuary, The Beastlet. This act and expression of dissent, allowed for all of the vanity, conflict, dreams and drama of everyday life to take up space and matter, within the individual proposals and the sanctuary as a whole. In THIS critical fiction, a simulated article for Vanity Fair, the students’ characters speak directly from The Beastlet, while “the architect” plays the role of the evil counterpart.
