Lance Blomgren uses his 2009 book Walkups—a novella set entirely within Montréal’s row house apartment buildings—as a springboard for an analysis of the discursive plane of fictional architecture. Looking at works by John Hejduk, Ilya Kabakov, Alice Aycock and others, Blomgren argues that contemporary modes of speculative architecture offer a vital, if ethically fraught, glimpse into what remains the pressing question: how to support subjective agency and social fluidity within the literal confines of the built environment. Lance Blomgren is a Vancouver-based writer, curator and artist.
