‘Aestheticizing violence’ explains that ‘architects are hesitant to take on dif cult problems, the ones not solved; such as the rehabilitation of slums, the reconstruction of buildings and cities that are damaged by war or destroyed by natural disaster’- Lebbeus Woods (2010). Wood’s idea to aesthetize violence has been an aesthetic tool to reinstate indigenous sovereignty and self-determination— transforming the psychological effects of intergenerational trauma, as an effect of colonization, making them look good, or at least non-violent.
My practice is an expansive effort to reconsider what and where a home may be, and to wear family wounds with pride.
