White, wide and scattered: picturing her housing career

Rather than looking to the contemporary real estate landscape as a field of

opportunity for the exercise of architectural agency – a move which is all too often

predicated on the reproduction of property rights and the individualized and indebted

subjects they belong to – we advocate viewing real estate as an object available to

feminist critique. At stake in such a critique is a possible reformulation of the architectural

subject in a manner that constitutes a firm and decisive shift away from the now-failing

model of the ‘entrepreneurial self’.
