f-architecture (alt: feminist-architecture collaborative) was founded by Gabrielle Printz, Virginia Black, and Rosana Elkhatib—all recent alumni of GSAPP’s Critical, Curatorial & Conceptual Practices program.  f-architecture was formed as an enterprise for architectural research aimed at disentangling the contemporary spatial politics and technological appearances of bodies, intimately and globally.

At the GSAPP Incubator, f-architects will develop their current project, Post-Fordist Hymen Factory, which maps the un/making of virginity across legal, medical, and cultural registers, by examining the circulation of an artificial membrane manufactured and sold as the Virginity Hymen. Intervening in both the design and distribution of this product, they will see the hymen’s transformation from cultural fixation to global commodity.
