Automated Environments, Feminist Futures
5 Mar 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm|
Celebrating International Women’s Day, the Royal Academy explores how architecture can help create inclusive, livable and socially aware cities that embrace the full gender spectrum in the age of technology. The increased automation is actively shaping the places we live in and how we interact with the urban space. From additional leisure time to dystopian visions, technology has impacted architecture, and with that it may have eliminated certain gender associations ascribed to specific jobs, although it may have also reinforced gender roles and inequalities.
Can architecture and design of spaces allow both men and women, humans and non-humans, to express their full potential and provide a working alternative to the status quo? Join the discussion panel to find out more on whether automation can lead to a feminist utopia, and if so, what spaces may look like.
