Torsten Lange (*1979) studied architecture and architectural history and theory at the Bauhaus-University Weimar and the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL in London, where he also received his Ph.D. in 2015. His research focuses on the history and theory of modern and contemporary architecture in its social, cultural and political dimension. He is particularly interested in economies and networks of architectural production in the (late-)socialist world, as well as, more recently, in questions of gender, sexuality and the body in relation to architecture and the built environment (2019 he was a research fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal, QC with the project “Queer Ecologies of Care”). He has published in journals and edited volumes and is the editor of “archithese reader: Critical Positions in Search of Postmodernity, 1971–1976” (with Gabrielle Schaad; Zürich: Triest Verlag, 2021 forthcoming); “Architectural Historiography and Fourth Wave Feminism” (with Lucía C. Pérez-Moreno, special collection of the EAHN open-access journal Architectural Histories, fall 2020); “Re-Framing Identities: Architecture’s Turn to History, 1970–1990” (with Ákos Moravánszky, Basel: Birkhäuser, 2017). Having spent several years at the Institute gta of ETH Zurich, he joined TU Munich as a visiting professor in 2019, while also teaching at TU Darmstadt and the University of Manchester.
