Re-framing Modernism: architecture and cultural identity in the ‘black Atlantic’

Re-framing Modernism: architecture and cultural identity in the ‘black Atlantic’
The history of Modernist architecture has emphasised its white European and American roots and manifestations – an embodiment of Enlightenment values of universalism, order and purity, and rejection of the hybrid, disordered, or otherwise unclassifiable. But Paul Gilroy has called for a re-framing of modernism and modernity as a ‘rhizomorphic, fractal, transcultural, international formation’, recognising the experience of the Black Atlantic as central to its history. Thislecture will consider the implications for perspectives on Modernist architecture in its various manifestations ‘at the periphery’, with reference to the work of French post-war architects Candilis Josic Woods – better known for their design of mass housing in France and North Africa - in the French territories of the Caribbean.
