Wilkins writes essay for Ruffneck Constructivists

Lecturer in Architecture, Craig Wilkins, has written an essay entitled, “A Cuirass Architecture” featured in a publication to accompany a group exhibition curated by artist Kara Walker.

Ruffneck Constructivists, brings together 11 international artists in order to define a contemporary manifesto of urban architecture and change. Inspired by both the Russian Constructivists and McLyte’s 1993 hit song “Ruffneck,” the phrase “Ruffneck Constructivists” evokes thuggishness as an expression of abjection.
