BiographyJulien Lafontaine Carboni is an architect. They graduated at ENSA Paris-Malaquais and currently pursues a PhD research at the ALICE Laboratory, EPFL. Julien published in several architectural, philosophical and anthropological journal such as Architecture and Culture, and Tabula Rasa. They investigates non-visual epistemologies to thread spatial histories. Bodies, gestures and words enact and perform spatialities, implying other forms of historicity concealed by the architectural disciplinarization. Thus, their aim is to replace architectural political agency in gestures themselves, while proposing a critical architectural historiography and theory.

DRAG(UE): Performativity and the built environment
The constructed environment will be explored through its performativity thanks to perspectives offered by gender studies, queer theories, de/postcolonial studies and urban sociology. Discussions will enable a critical analysis of the environment from the perspective of social frameworks and norms.
