feminist architecture collaborative a three-woman architectural research enterprise aimed at disentangling the contemporary spatial politics and technological appearances of bodies, intimately and globally. Their projects traverse theoretical and activist registers to locate new forms of architectural work through critical relationships with collaborators across the globe. Current projects are located in New York City, on the US-Mexico border, in the Amazon of Ecuador, and in the MENA region.

Taking a global view of design practice—the production of representations, objects, spaces and experiences—f-architecture aims to “design design” to yield new possibilities for women of all genders. This critical practice is rooted in research, fieldwork, and collaboration, and emerges in public formats including exhibitions, interventions, publications, and digital experiences—an expanded set of documents by which architecture is made and communicated.
