PRAXXIS is a feminist research collective and vertical teaching studio (atelier) in both the BA(Hons) and M.Arch courses at the Manchester School of Architecture (MSA). Alongside research activity, staff in the PRAXXIS atelier activate students to create projects which are both personal and political, through robust, open and unapologetically feminist conversations. We explore and ask questions as to what feminist architecture might be now and, in the future, investigating inequalities in society and understanding what they may mean for physical and digital environments. Project Road Maps are an explicitly reflective pedagogical tool, assisting students in comprehending who they are becoming.
