USC Course Aims to Dismantle ‘Binary,’ ‘Heteronormative’ Architecture

The University of Southern California School of Architecture offers a course on “Errors and Omissions” in architecture. One of the course’s objectives is to encourage students to dismantle “binary” and “heteronormative” architecture, clearing the way for the “queering” and “spatial occupation” of such spaces.

The built environment is constructed in binary heteronormative ways that exclude queer people, which causes the creation of hidden, often unstable, queer spaces,” claims a blog post on the university’s website.

A student’s portfolio is displayed, showing sketches of a city environment both before and after it has been “queered” to comfort “LGBTQIA+” people. 

The only differences appear to be the swapping of balconies on the apartment building for awnings over the street-level retail stores, and painting the corner of the building pink.

Tuition at USC is nearly $65,000. Tens of millions of students are taking out massive loans to fund this sort of nonsensical indoctrination, and many are banking on the Biden administration to “forgive” those loans, or rather, pass the financial burden onto the American taxpayer.

This is not the first example of leftist nonsense making its way into the field of structural design. Earlier this month, the New Guard reported on a formerly prestigious architectural award that was given by Pennsylvania State University to a student who “challenged the gender binary” of a train station’s entryway.

Instead of spending four or more years learning how to make superficial and meaningless adjustments to architecture to satisfy the Left, why not learn something actually useful?
