LOST IN PLAY: COLLECTIVE PERSONAL STORYTELLING by Nooma Studio
A5, 28 pages, two colour risograph printing, saddle stitched, 2021
Lost in Play: Collective Personal Storytelling is the first of a new periodical zine publication about Unlearning Through Play from Nooma and friends of the studio as part of commissioned work for Architecture Fringe 2021.
This year’s Architecture Fringe Festival is based on the theme of (Un)Learning - a recurring theme in NOOMA Studio’s work and a topic that is very much close to our hearts both professionally and personally as a collective design studio.
From the outset it was obvious that our response needed to be conversational and true to our belief in the effectiveness of collective play-led storytelling. We asked members and friends of the studio to each submit a personal spread that responds to the theme ‘[UN]Learning Through Play’ which has captured a snapshot of our studio discourse in zine form.
Engaging with the festival this year has given us an opportunity to look deep within and to open a dialogue amongst our wider network on the theme of [UN]Learning. It has encouraged us to ask what more can be done to shake off the inherited knowledge and social structures that perpetuate the social injustices that we seek to deconstruct?
