Following Hélène Cixous’s Steps Towards a Writing Architecture

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.
