Joanna Zawieja

Joanna Zawieja’s work looks into the politics of architectural representation, exploring in particular how image-driven narratives influence the built environment. In the text Houses, she juxtaposes the history of an empty house in East London, a former Victorian institution where “fallen women” were trained in the art of homemaking, with the story of a meeting between an architect and her client set in the present to ask: where are our architectural needs and desires formulated?
