Thandi Loewenson

Thandi Loewenson (b. 1989, Harare) is an architectural designer and researcher who mobilizes design, fiction, and performance to stoke embers of emancipatory political thought and fires of collective action, and to feel for the contours of other possible worlds. Using fiction as a design tool and tactic, and operating in the overlapping realms of the weird, the tender, the earthly, and the airborne, Thandi engages in projects which question the status-quo, while working with communities, policy makers, artists, and architects towards acting on those provocations. Thandi is a senior tutor at the Royal College of Art, a co-curator of Race, Space, & Architecture, and co-founder of architectural research collectives BREAK//LINE and Fiction, Feeling, Frame.
