Following Hélène Cixous’s Steps Towards a Writing Architecture
RMIT University, Melbourne Australia.
2010 (English)In: Architectural Theory Review, ISSN 1755-0475, Vol. 15, no 3, 312-323 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In her book Coming to Writing, He ́le`ne Cixous suggests that the woman writer must always struggle to establish her right to write. Within the field of architecture the act of writing is often assumed to be a passive after- effect of the built form and not an active force that might substantially participate in the process of design and its material out- come in a world. Using Cixous as a guide, I will argue that a creative and critical practice of writing can materially contribute to the thinking and doing of architecture, especially with regard to the woman architect.
