Research / Bio:   
Ted Landrum has been teaching architecture since 2006, following 11+ years of comprehensive architectural experience in New York City, Montréal and Ottawa. Ted’s approach to architecture has been shaped by a wide diversity of formative experiences and ongoing interests, including construction and engineering, as well as theatre, cinema, poetry, philosophy, criticism and art. He collaborates on a variety of creative research projects, including strange “group costumes” devised and performed as heuristic dramatizations of the social body. Aspects of these collaborative experiments have been exhibited, published, paraded and performed, most recently in an architectural dream-play, called “Eudaimonia” in Confabultions: Storytelling in Architecture (Routledge, 2017).

In 2017, Ted published his debut book Midway Radicals & Archi-Poems, recently reviewed in Canadian Architect (Nov. 2017). Ted is a regular reader at poetry events, notably “Thin Air: Winnipeg’s International Writers Festival”, Sept. 24th 2017. An interview on “archi-poetry” was published online as part of an influential CanLit series: “20 Questions”. Ted’s writing is published internationally: The Brooklyn Rail, CV2, On Site review, Lemon Hound, The American Society for Aesthetics, The Winnipeg Review, Edge Condition, Katalog, and UManitoba websites of the Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture, and School of Art Gallery. As a parallel project, Ted has been building an archive of “archi-poetry” research at www.ubuloca.com

Ted is a co-curator for Winnipeg’s annual Architecture + Design Film Festival, and coordinates the festival’s ArchiShorts film contest. As an extention of the annual 5 days festival, ADFF screens films throughout the year at a variety of venues, including the University of Manitoba.
