Though largely assumed to be a gender-free discipline, the built environment transcends the neutrality of geometrically determined and physically defined structures to become a site of lived life, where cultural processes, gender transactions, and spatial productions are continually enacted. The underrepresentation of binary folks’ and women’s bodies and experiences creates a possible setting for subordination in the city as all genders engage with it differently. From public to private space (from the city to the dwelling) and the grey areas in-between, gender sensitivity helps shape design and planning projects. The workshop attempts to expose the participants to look at the creation and consumption of the built environment from the analytical construct of gender at various scales and functions. Through observation, conversation, and recordings we hope to develop visual literacy for ‘reading’ space, and for understanding the ways in which built landscapes organize and reflect gendered meanings in the Indian context.

Feminist Collective in Architecture (FCA) is a collective of architects, artists and designers working towards creating and expanding spaces for non cis-males in architecture and allied fields. FCA works towards mobilizing professionals, academicians and students to discuss and act upon issues of gender and to reconceive the discipline of architecture from a feminist lens – both in a discursive as well as practical manner.
