Architect living in Copenhagen. She has been teaching at art schools and universities, with the main focus of developing a critical gaze and understanding of our urban environment, mainly through subjective mapping. She is interested in how politics affects us in our daily life, how it becomes physical, and how this can be made visible and represented through critical cartography. Moreover, she is now busy building her own house, through construction-workshops and knowledge sharing.

Critical Drifting


An architectural odyssey through our common living rooms

Critical Drifting


An architectural odyssey through our common living rooms
An invitation for city dwellers and wanderers to a workshop, of exploring the power of drifting.
File under

To drift, to walk is to perform the everyday.
It is about being aware of the smallest element of space in architecture – that is our body.
It is a humble, necessary and fundamental start for changes on a bigger scale; which is about who have the right to the city – to our streets and our commons. Who´s bodies are “allowed” to move where, how and when? Where can we depict racism, sexism, class differences and other limitations for our movement and being in the city?
We will examine the relationship between our body and the cityscape. The walking, the wandering will be the main tool in order to raise and develop a critical gaze, and in extension to claim and appropriate the public space.
The walking is here a method, used to negotiate with the rules of the city, to make visible the systems of control and power that surrounds us. Thus, the action becomes a form of resistance.
