About the show


Disparition, the act of disappearing, based on Latin disparere, in an obsolete word in English - itself disappearing. Every week, this show investigates through several interviews what is going away and perhaps never coming back in our architectural educations. Discussions are conducted one after the other, as to never reach a consensus so that listeners can craft their own resolution to the topic and build their own position on whether or not it is disappearing.


EP 08: Vacation

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, "the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require payment for time not worked, such as vacations, sick leave, or federal or other holidays." Coming from France - a country with 25 mandated paid vacation days per year - I had always taken for granted the concept of taking time off to pursue whatever activity one wishes, or one has to perform.

In this episode of Disparitions, I'm interested in covering the various appearances a pause might take, from holidays to sabbaticals, through breaks and leaves. How does an administration determine the right amount of time off that its subjects are allowed to take? Are there patterns that some people try to replicate every time they go on leave? To what extent are these periods connected, or disconnected, from what happens during the rest of the year? Should we conceive pauses as the servant spaces of our main occupations? When did the notion of a a productive summer start emerging?

As physically moving around is currently restricted in many parts of the world, the coming three months will barely differ from the past two, spent at home for most of the MIT Architecture community. We are thus facing the paradox of an emptier summer that might end up being filled with a diversity of small things that would have never reached us had we been somewhere, but that will take over our screens while we are nowhere

I will be talking about past and future pauses with Ana Miljački (MIT Faculty and Critical Broadcasting Lab, A+U Group, and MArch program director) and Ana McIntosh (MArch '22) to hear what they do when they are away, and to what extend the upcoming summer might still operate as a break within our world on pause. This will be the final episode of the Disparitions series on what might be going away and never come back in architectural education. Discussions will resume in a few weeks, after a pause, and in a different format.

Bonus: as I was searching for a beach picture to illustrate this episode, I stumbled upon this fascinating account of the Soviet attempt to eradicate the plague by manually killing rodents in Central Asia's plains.
