Dr Hélène Frichot::archandphil blog convener

November 28, 2011

Dr Hélène Frichot has recently taken up a new position as assistant professor in the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH, Stockholm, in the Critical Studies stream. She has co-curated the Architecture+Philosophy public lecture series in Melbourne, Australia (http://architecture.testpattern.com.au) since 2005. Between 2004-2011 she held a academic position in the School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University. Her research examines the transdisciplinary field between architecture and philosophy (while her first discipline is architecture, she holds a PhD in philosophy from the University of Sydney, 2004). Hélène draws predominantly on the philosophical work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, alongside other poststructuralist, as well as feminist thinkers. Her published research has ranged widely from commentary on the ethico-aesthetics of contemporary digital architecture operating within the new biotechnological paradigm, to the role of emerging participatory and relational practices in the arts, including critical and creative spatial practices. She considers architecture-writing to be her mode of practice.
