The Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative has just published its Black Lives Matter dossier, edited by Jonathan Massey and Meredith TenHoor with Sben Korsh.
Their open call asked: What does it mean to put black lives at the center of our thinking about architecture and its history? Now published, the dossier looks at the Black Lives Matter movement through architectural and urban research. The edited collection diagnoses sources of violence, identifies forms of resistance, and reimagines Black aesthetics.
The work of current student Héctor Tarrido-Picart (LA and MUD ’15) has been included. His essay,
“Valuing Black Lives Means Changing Curricula,” is a personal reflection on pedagogy, race, and his own education and experience as a designer and student.
