Borrowing Positions: Role Playing Design & Architecture
Borrowing Positions: Role-Playing Design & Architecture is a speculative book which reflects on design- and architecture-centered Live Action Role-Plays organized by Trojan Horse collective. The book invites the reader to try on different characters, switch roles and reconsider the everyday practices of designer and architect.
Who or what shapes the roles of designers and architects in contemporary society? How can we illuminate the power structures behind taking, building or defining your own or someone else’s role as a designer or an architect? How flexible are these roles?
The book is a collection of articles and essays. It includes overviews of Live Action Role-Plays organized by Trojan Horse in 2017 and 2018, theoretical reflections about role-playing and a practical, step-by-step guide to how to organize your own design LARP.
Contributors vary from architecture and design practitioners to performance artists working with role-play and fiction.
