Edit: Honey, I'm Home! (online)

The floor plan of a typical house can be read as a diagram of familial and gendered power relations through the simple demarcation of space. This spatialised diagram of power structures has been naturalised to the point that it is rarely interrogated properly, and duplicated without concern for its contribution to the current housing and social crisis.

An ongoing research project, Honey I’m home questions the architectural qualities of domestic spaces through the critique of their foundations: the nuclear family.

Edit is a group of womxn working collectively to challenge the enduring biases and hierarchies embedded in the built environment. The feminist design collective believes in full social, economic, and political equality for all and uses design as a tool to support more egalitarian interactions, both during the design process and as an outcome of the finished project.

In 2021, Edit was selected by the Future Architecture Platform for their call for ideas with the project Honey, I’m Home. This ongoing research project, focusing on domestic design, explores how the layout and contents of our homes have the power to influence and maintain established gender and family roles. As part of the same research project, Edit exhibited a fictional prototype for collectivising domestic labour at the Oslo Architecture Triennale in 2019. As an alternative to the capitalist assumption that housework is most efficient when performed individually, the Gross Domestic Product is a device that can be used only by three people.

Members of Edit are: Alberte Lauridsen, Alice Meyer, Hannah Rozenberg, Marianna Janowicz, Svitlana Lavrenchuk, Saijel Taank, Sophie Williams
