Torsten Lange will present his research-in-progress on the emergence and consolidation of LGBT* community spaces in Toronto from the beginning of the gay liberation movement to the HIV/AIDS crisis, with a specific focus on space-making strategies that promoted queer sociability and community organization.
Torsten Lange is Visiting Lecturer of the Theory of Architecture at the Institute gta, ETH Zurich. He studied Architecture at the Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany, and received his Master and PhD in Architectural and Urban History and Theory from the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. His research focuses on twentieth-century architecture and urbanism, especially in socialist Eastern Europe, and examines issues of production and labour, questions of the environment, and, more recently, gender. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Architectural Histories, Archimaera, Field, The Journal of Architecture, and East Central Europe. He contributed to the edited volumes Industries of Architecture (Routledge, 2016) and Produktionsbedingungen der Architektur (Thelem, 2018). With Ákos Moravánszky, Judith Hopfengärtner, and Karl R. Kegler he is editor of the three-volume publication East West Central: Re-Building Europe, 1950–1990 (Birkhäuser, 2017); and with Lucia C. Perez-Moreno he is currently co-editing “Architectural Historiography and Fourth Wave Feminism,” a special collection of Architectural Histories, the open-access journal of the European Architectural History Network (EAHN).
