The Architecture Lobby is gearing up to launch a free, six-week virtual summer school program that, per the Brooklyn-headquartered nonprofit organization, “stems from a desire within the Lobby to critically interrogate the structures and systems of power that have made change difficult within design professions and institutions, as well as from a belief that architecture schools do not teach what and how they could.”

Titled the Architecture Beyond Capitalism School (or ABC School for short), the initiative will kick off on June 19 with the first of three thematic sessions—Capitalism, Labor, and Collective Practice—and conclude July 31 with a virtual “think-in.” All 2-hour sessions will be held in the late afternoon/early evening every other Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST with “salons of shared imaginaries” held on alternate Saturdays. As noted by the ABC School organizers, the salons are “meant to challenge typical ‘studio’ output; the assignments/imaginaries to be shared and discussed are not describing buildings.”
