Amy Perkins on Architectural Flirtations
24 August, 2021
I first came across Brady’s work in 2019 when organising a workshop on ‘crits’ in architectural education. Her use of humour in a space where the overriding emotions in the room are often fear, frustration or relief, was refreshing. Yet beyond the first impressions of silliness at dressing the participants of a crit in costume, or the more obvious questioning of the roles we all automatically inhabit in this space, is an attempt at disarming and disrupting the power dynamics within this pedagogical practice in order to allow space for vulnerability and risk to enter the discussion. She argues that this mindset is what will allow us to move beyond criticism and towards critique.
