She recently resigned from her position as Dean of Architecture at the Spitzer School of Architecture\, CCNY\, and is now planning the African Futures Institute\, an independent postgraduate school of architecture in Accra\, Ghana. In 2021\, she will hold visiting professorships at The Cooper Union\, University of Virginia and Yale University. She was the founder and director of the Graduate School of Architecture at the University of Johannesburg from 2014 — 2019. She is the editor of White Papers\, Black Marks: Race\, Culture\, Architecture (University of Minnesota Press\, 2000); editor-in-chief of FOLIO: Journal of Contemporary African Architecture. She is also a series editor of the Design Research in Architecture (UCL Press)\, together with founders Jonathan Hill and Murray Fraser. In 2004\, she made the successful transition from academic to novelist with the publication of her first novel\, Sundowners (Orion 2004)\, a UK-Guardian top forty best-seller\, and has since then followed with eleven further best-sellers\, which have been translated into fifteen languages. She has lectured and published widely on the subject of race\, identity and architecture\, and has served on many international juries and awards over the past decade\, including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture\, Archiprix\, the RIBA President’s Medals\, Archmarathon and the Venice Biennale. She is the recipient of the 2020 RIBA Annie Spink Award for Excellence in Architectural Education \ \ \ \nCLICK HERE TO REGISTER URL: LOCATION:ONLINE END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20210311T183000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20210311T193000 DTSTAMP:20210305T111758 CREATED:20210208T190737Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210208T190737Z SUMMARY:LSA THURSDAY Evening TALKS - SA21 student led talk QSoA Queer Students of Architecture DESCRIPTION:CLICK HERE TO REGISTER \nDanni Kerr RIBA FHEA MInstP \n“Your Name’s not on the List: The Failure of Space as Social Mediator” \nThursday 11 March\, 2021 – 18:30 \nSynopsis : I will be discussing how the power that attaches or is attached to space disables mediation for minority persons as a ‘normal’ way of being; and how ‘normal’ behaviour in the space and meta-spaces of communities and institutions leads to non-participation\, invisibility and exclusion. I will be presenting evidence from my own lived experience. \nDanni Kerr is an architect\, teacher and academic. She cares about what she does\, how she does it and who she does it with. Her dedication is to architecture education and is currently completing a PhD thesis on ‘Design for Time’ at Sheffield School of Architecture. As a Role Model for the RIBA\, Danni is actively engaged in the much needed push for an inclusive profession. \nHere are a couple of my better known quotes: \n“If you don’t have a life outside architecture – what are you bringing to it?” \n“Which is of more value; a brick at the bottom of the wall or one at the top?” \nCLICK HERE TO REGISTER URL: LOCATION:ONLINE END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20210315T180000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20210315T190000 DTSTAMP:20210305T111758 CREATED:20210208T191116Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210208T191116Z SUMMARY:LSA THURSDAY Evening TALKS - SA 21 Student led talk led by BLAC - Black Led Architecture Collective DESCRIPTION:CLICK HERE TO REGISTER \nAbout this Event\nMartin Prince-Parrott \nThis semesters Guest Lecture Series features the first Events organised and introduced by our Student Led Groups. \nThese have been established to provide collective voices to encourage activism\, influence and change\, as well as supporting a culture of empowerment. The groups provide a network to voice out and act on issues and identities. \nBlack Led Architecture Collective (BLAC) \nOur group aims to create a safe space for black students to be supported and heard. BLAC focuses on racial issues within architectural education and the architectural world\, with a specific look at black people’s experiences within the profession. Within this group we will provide a range of educational tools and events such as book and film clubs to get a better understanding of architecture outside of the Western world. We are also interested in organising talks and podcasts to discuss issues that are prevalent in our current climate. Along with allies from other societies\, we aim to produce termly zine for the entire school with hopes to display an end of year project at the degree show URL: LOCATION:ONLINE END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
