The idea of this course is to offer reflections on the role of architecture and design as form of refusal in the manifold dimension offered by the reading of different authors that, in different way, could contribute to shed lights to the complicit, dissensual, alternative, distant, abolitionist reading of such a complex cultural term. Reflecting on the tension between refusal and abolition (of canon, of agency, of author, of site, to the limitless of architecture) the lectures wish to engage directly with the role of critical theory, if any, in the shaping, forming and norming of architectural knowledge and design practice. The lectures series will be introduced and concluded by a one opening and one closing session with two guests in discussion with the Professor and then a series of seminars will be held based on reading the suggested author-text and a discussion with will follow in which Professor will attempt to curate a dialogue based on his works and research interests. Titles of the opening and closing sections are pointers and must be discussed with the speakers upon acceptance of the proposal. At the moment the proposal is imagined along 10 sessions of around two hours.
