Criticism is born from a diversity of experience and opinions and a willingness to tackle these with others. Constructive criticism requires this confrontation to take place in order to bring about a conversation that is dynamic, fertile and importantly, positive. The by-product of this is the raw material which we seek to develop, by providing a platform for finding, refining or reinforcing a variety of differing perspectives .
Our focus is on facilitating these conversations, bringing them away from corridors and onto an open stage.
DIS-cour.se is an independent arena for the exchange of architectural ideas, enabling the renewal of a critical culture, established as a not-for profit organisation it is an experimental forum for coordinating encounters with design thinkers willing to proclaim their positions and have them tested in public, a place for sounding out new ideas by challenging preconceptions and encouraging initiative and forward thinking.
Founded by in partnership with Australian architect James Carter in 2012, DIS-cour.se now comprises a number of collaborators from diverse fields, which affords us the flexibility to engage in a variety of cultural projects.
