‘House-holding’

5-6 December: Visit to Stockholm KTH Royal Institute of Technology to give a lecture and seminar with colleagues and students from the Critical Studies in Architecture programmes.

My host, Helene Frichot, shares an expertise in Spinoza. She, her colleague, Katja Grillner, and I discussed questions of critical philosophical approaches to PhD research, including discussions with architect colleagues doing PhDs in housing design and urban planning. Conversation included: the lack of housing in the swedish housing sector; the term – ‘house-holding’ (from Asa Stjerna) – as way of thinking about short-term/rental and global housing contexts; approaches to demystifying the distribution of power throughout the housing sector, and the responsibility of the architect (Anna Braide Eriksson).
