This term, History and Theory senior lecturer, Dr Huda Tayob, convenes three reading sessions that will each be led by a different GSA Unit Tutor. The reading group is understood as a tool that fits into the wider framework of the Transformative Pedagogies agenda of the GSA. In taking the time for close reading and slow conversation, the group will talk through ways of thinking, theorizing and practicing architecture. We will question what we consider as architectural truths, along with the modes, methods and forms of writing which give ideas shape. These conversations are informal and open to all (staff and students included) and will take places at GSA Metro, 62 Juta St, Braamfontein.
