Nerma Cridge is an architect, artist and academic based in London. She is currently teaching at the Architectural Association in London and Cambridge School of Art.

Her first book Drawing the Unbuildable, based on her PhD thesis on the Soviet avant-garde, was published by Routledge in 2015. She contributed to the recent Re:Print publication edited by Veronique Chance and Duncan Ganley with an article on the three-dimensional printing of buildings entitled Printing the Familiar. Forthcoming publications include a chapter entitled Drawn by Zaha Hadid in Made by Women, Routledge Anthology edited by Anna Sokolina.

Her interests span politics, abstraction, repetition, series and drawing in three-dimensional spaces. In her talk Nerma will discuss her art installation projects starting with the current Comm(O)nism piece in the Place exhibition at the Ruskin Gallery. She will also describe her contribution to the Letters to the Mayor of Pyong Yang, exhibited at Seoul Architecture Biennale in 2017. Amongst others, the Fragile series, Decoy Cities, Ice Evidence as well as Echo 5Xhand(drawn) Installation at RMIT Melbourne will be debated. An architectural response to Trump’s Wall will form the concluding part of the talk.
