    TAKING PLACE 8: INTERSTITIAL BREAKFAST Making Space for Questions about Architecture
and Feminism

Abstract

In November 2001, exactly 15 years before the Architecture & Feminisms conference in Stockholm, the feminist spatial practice group taking place had organized ‘taking place 2’ at the University of North London. We invited 100 guests – mostly women - to the architecture school and brought domestic ‘supporting’ activities into the front-of-house and spaces of presentation. We started the day with a shared breakfast. The themes of Architecture & Feminisms remain central to the work each of us continue to do, and many of the group who had been involved with taking place 2 were already making individual contributions to the conference. We used the opportunity to re-visit our conversations and to extend them to others at this new event. We asked conference delegates, ‘What are the relevant questions for architecture and feminism today?’ On the second morning, before paper sessions began, we gathered together with delegates over breakfast to discuss their questions, recording comments on tablecloths as we talked and ate.
