This conference explores and discusses the implications and challenges of inclusive facilities and socially just public design through the lens of gender-neutral public toilets.
The conference's primary aim is to share experience, innovative research and practice around access and built space, as well as to propose innovative creative and critical ways of embedding diverse bodies into current and future projects and activities.
Stalled! London originated from the shared interests of the American based Stalled! team and The Bartlett School of Architecture to learn more about developments in gender-neutral and inclusive city planning in the UK built environment. Stalled! London aims to bring together academics, artists, and architects from across the UK working on the topic of public toilets from a social equity perspective as well as to identify commonalities and differences and share working practices and strategies trans-nationally.
Some of the questions this conference seeks to address are:
- How have the historically and currently contested spaces of toilet provision in public buildings and spaces helped reproduce gendered, racialised and normative built spaces?
- How might we enable creative and critical debate that explores interrelationships between diverse bodies and the design of built space in innovative ways?
- How might we share innovative research and practice around access and built space into architecture so as to generate new kinds of conversations, attitudes and approaches to the built environment and urban planning?
- What alternative ways of designing and planning exist to meet the challenge of designing safe, sustainable and inclusive public toilets and related amenities?
