  • When we look at architecture representation it is in a very colonial sense, strictly looking at form through mainly orthographic and axomentric drawing techniques. This always makes these structures lack any human and feel stuck in that place in time and space. In this talk, Meena will take all these drawing techniques and repurpose them to see how we can represent architecture and displacement. Storytelling has never been seen as a true form of research in architecture but it is essential for of knowledge exchange in so many cultures. Through telling my mother’s story, Meena will to show how we use storytelling as a tool to understand architecture’s role in displacement.
