Q_Studio researches social equalities and queerness as a potential generator of Architectural futures.
A spatial creative agency situated in Melbourne, Australia, on the land of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation.
We critically approach the current conditions of queer space with an intent to foster architecture and design that better reflects socially progressive theory and politics for the lived experience.
By expanding, exploding and dissecting the definition of queer space and place,
Q_Studio works to apply research to tangible, built projects, architecture, tertiary education, and public discussion.
Through an expanding definition of what a ‘queer space’ can be, we critically approach current conditions both within and beyond the design profession with the intention to foster an architecture that better reflect socially progressive movement.
"Queering space thus involves a potentially extraordinary variety of events of appropriation and transformation of straight, hierarchical spaces and the creation of counter, queer, horizontal, autonomous spaces in the interstices/margins of dominant space for the proliferation of new pleasures, desires, subjectivities."
