The Laboratory of Literary Architecture (LabLitArch)
24 - 28 October | 5 - 9pm
Room 06, Building 5, Dubai Design District (d3)
Dubai Design Week, in collaboration with Emirates Literature Foundation, presents the Laboratory of Literature Architecture (LabLitArch), a cross-disciplinary exploration of Literature and Architecture that examines how pure, spatial wordless thought is an essential aspect of both literary and architectural structures.
LabLitArch, developed and delivered by Architect and Writer Matteo Pericoli, is adapted specifically for literature and architecture students, as well as emerging and established writers and architects.
Participants of this twenty hour workshop will learn how to interpret, design and build an architectural model based on the structure of a literary text.
About The Laboratory of Literary Architecture
How many times have we paused while reading a book and had the feeling that we were inside a structure built either knowingly or unknowingly, by the writer? Not simply the ability to visualize the locations or architectural settings described in the text, but rather the sense of being immersed in a literary space designed by someone else.
With The Paris Review calling it "...one of the strangest and most interesting classes I'd ever seen", and IL magazine calling it "a stunning intellectual experiment", the goal of LabLitArch is to dig deep into a given text in order to recognize and communicate its architectural and structural essence as each participant perceives it.
By analyzing and focusing on the core elements of a given text, participants will be able to determine their role and importance in relationship to the overall structure. These concepts will then be translated into an architectural model that is not a literal representation of the text (ie. a three-dimensional description of the spaces or locations described in the text), but rather a literary representation, which expresses the essential ideas of the text’s structure in spatial form.
Once completed, the final project will allow the viewer – when experiencing the architectural model – to perceive the emotions and sensations of the story’s intangible structure, without necessarily knowing what it is.

Participation Fee: 500 AED
