Day 39 of the 100 Day Studio: If design professions are to play a relevant role in future world-making, the disciplines must change. Yet architecture, for instance, is a notoriously conservative discipline that clings to traditional notions of mastery and individual creativity, maintaining hierarchical and patriarchal structures. Charlotte Malterre-Barthes presents a chronicle of the efforts to bring about change and awareness on gender and diversity at the Architecture Department of ETH Zurich. She and comrade Dubravka Sekulic discuss their joint effort to bring intersectionality to the architecture school, and how they hope to establish an ecology of practices that transform design disciplines in a responsive, urgent, and sustainable fashion. They are joined in conversation by Khensani De Klerk, a current MPhil student at the University of Cambridge.
