Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women’s Shelters and Hospitals

Contested Spaces examines the relationship between space, defined physically, legally and legislatively, and how these factors directly impact the spaces of abortion. Analyzing how various political entities shape the physical landscapes of inclusion and exclusion to reproductive healthcare access, the book questions what architecture’s responsibilities are in respect to this spatial conflict. Join author Lori Brown for an interdisciplinary conversation on how architecture’s role might be redefined within social and spatial practices, and what design’s potential impact might be.
