LECTURE: Des-Habitat and Reparation Architecture
by Paulo Tavares


With his book Des-Habitat, Brazilian architect, activist, and curator Paulo Tavares intervenes in Lina Bo Bardi’s Habitat and shows how the 1950s-magazine’s modern visual language functioned as a framing device to conceal its own coloniality.

In December 2020, Tavares was a keynote speaker for the symposium The Coming South: Struggles, Epistemologies, organized by Marina Otero and Angela Dimitrakaki at the Nieuwe Instituut. Unfortunately, the presentation was interrupted almost immediately due to a bad wifi connection. K. Verlag is pleased to share Paulo’s lecture, “Reparation Architecture,” on the occasion of our publication of the second edition of Des-Habitat. The video stream will be followed by a live Q & A with Tavares. Tune in!

Paulo Tavares is an architect and urbanist. He is the founder and director of autonoma, an agency dedicated to exploring the frontiers between architecture, visual cultures and social activism. Currently, he holds an Adjunct Professor position at the Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo, Universidade de Brasília. In 2019, he was co-curator of the Chicago Architecture Biennial “And Other Such Stories.” He is based in Brasília.
