‘A queered architecture begins in the assumption that nothing lies beyond it as its source of legitimacy; that whatever justification it possesses is immanent to its practice'

Struggles for space: Queering straight space: Thinking towards a queer architecture’ by Julius Gavroche, 2016

As part of of this year’s core programme, Queer Space is a research and design project which invites queer club producers based in Glasgow to imagine their ideal nightclub. Paired with local designers, together they will explore iterations of possible queered architectures.

Like a club night needing to fit within a pre-existing space, people who identify as queer are expected to conform to found, normative conditions. But what if we are able to set and design the conditions, and the space, on our own terms? To subvert the norm? We'll be exploring possible queered architectures with some of Glasgow's leading queer club producers.
