QSPACE makes questions of gender and sexuality visible to a field that has traditionally disavowed such questions. In the absence of a centralized voice, QSPACE is a hub for students, professionals, and academics to connect and collaborate. QSPACE produces research and outputs on topics such as gender-inclusive bathroom design, LGBTQ homelessness and housing, and queer histories in architecture.
QSPACE is a platform for research projects by students and professionals working on queerness in the built environment. It pushes for organized action through exhibitions, publications, digital archiving, design guidelines, and events on queer topics. QSPACE was born out of Queer Students of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (QSAPP), an LGBTQ group from Columbia University.
