About the Speaker

Erandi de Silva is a Sri Lankan-British-Canadian Architect and Editor, currently based in Accra, Ghana. In 2016, she launched Loké Journal, which examines the art of making as an inclusive, cross-cultural, and global pursuit. Loké Journal is a leader in the effort to actively widen the conversations in the field, by making space for a multiplicity of experiences, ideas, and work.

Lecture Summary

This lecture will explore architectural publishing as a critical practice with emancipatory potential. As a counterpoint to a talk given at the University of Rwanda in 2019, ‘Centering the Edge’ will reveal how the act of filling the gaps in what stories are shared, can move the discipline toward both greater equity and understanding. The role that writing can play in building a ground-up movement toward a freer, more inclusive landscape within architecture will be discussed, while looking back at over a decade of digital and printed work.
