How We Live Now: Reimagining Spaces with Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative includes an installation, publication and events programme by the Barbican that explores who is excluded from our designed environment.

A free installation of previously unseen work by radical 1980s feminist architecture co-operative Matrix features films, drawings, photographs and architectural models from the Matrix archive.

Through a range of programmes, both past and contemporary approaches to design are discussed that aim to empower groups often marginalised by the built environment, including Black and Asian women's organisations and lesbian and gay housing co-operatives.

How We Live Now: Reimagining Spaces with Matrix Feminist Design Co-operative takes place from 17 May to 23 December 2021 at Level G, Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS, United Kingdom.
