Abstract [en]

The built environment works as a constant manual for our bodies to relate to. Whether we reflect on it or not, it is the stage and the set for our everyday social dramas. What happens if the clarity of how to perceive or how to use a space becomes blurred? As architects we usually seek function, efficiency in usage, readability and clarity. In this project I have instead embraced the vague, the skewed, the contradictory and the in-between. As a method of creating I use chance and intuition. I find inspiration in the phenomena of drag where I discover that vague and undefined space can have a similar way of revealing normative truths as social constructions. Through initiating a dialogue between body and space, vagueness creates an awareness of the architecture that surrounds and shapes us. The vagueness in itself also allows for different interpretations, multiple ways to perceive and make use or not make use of space. By seeing vagueness as an asset it could perhaps contribute to a more diverse future architecture to live in and relate to.
