Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975

@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"We started with several books that looked at the brownstone as a site of intervention."

In Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975 from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Charles L. Davis, II, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, shows works from his recent exhibition project, Building Black Utopias, and discusses the literature that served as inspiration. 

The Building Black Utopias project combines the tools of the architect, the historian and the literary critic to recover the historical contributions of African American writers to architectural utopian thought. It specifically examines the role of literary depictions of place in June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Paule Marshall and Angela Davis’ writings. Davis argues that each authors’ rhetorical manipulations of the built environment operates on the same level as architectural utopian thought insofar as both mediums created rich, alternative depictions of modernist space to liberate the architect’s imagination. The final exhibit translates the spatial ideas of literature into drawings, models and other ephemera.

Tramping Huts

Architecture students typically build models for their theses, Callum Dowie constructed a complete building. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PechaKucha Night Auckland Vol. 17) he speaks of the tramping huts found throughout New Zealand -- once used for overnight stays on hunting trips, now used for long-term hikes -- and how they were built of materials that needed to be carried. These huts inspired him to construct a foldable, easily assembled (by 4 people, in 2 hours) living space that could have valuable real-world application for those in areas post natural disaster.
