‘Journey into unfamiliar space’, utopia in practice: interview with Lidewij Tummers

Journal of Romance Studies (2007), 7, (1), 59–70.

Abstract

In this interview Lidewij Tummers explores issues relating to contemporary women’s experience of architectural space, including urban space. Drawing on her experience as an architect, and informed by feminist and other contemporary theorizations of space, Tummers seeks to find ways in which women can ‘journey’ more effectively through the built environment, finding practicable utopias, in which existing architectural codes might be challenged.
