Malin Heyman is an architect educated at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York, United States, and the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. She is a founding partner of the Stockholm based collaborative practice AT - HH and practices architecture within the frameworks of both built work and speculative projects through exhibitions and publications. AT - HH’s work investigates the role of architecture in identity-forming processes in relation to the central role of fiction in the production and representation of architecture. Malin Heyman has worked on built projects in Sweden, the US and Switzerland and her work has been exhibited at Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design, Venice Biennale, Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, Archivo in Mexico City, Royal Academy of Spain in Rome, SPARK in Malmö, Färgfabriken and Liljevalchs Konsthall in Stockholm, and Proyector in Mexico City. Her work as writer, editor and architect has been published in journals and books such as Rotunda (Trema förlag), Arkitektur, Architectural Dissonances (L’Internationale), LOBBY Magazine, New Generations, A.MAG and Arkitekturtidskriften KRITIK.
Malin Heyman started and still runs Out of Practice Studio together with Anders Berensson at the KTH School of Architecture. By attentively and playfully using, discussing and attempting to challenge the tools of architecture one at a time by taking them “out of practice” into the space of the studio and embrace the fact that we are all a little “out of practice”, the studio hopes to slowly start untangling understandings of what agency we really have as practitioners. Working out our imagination as well as working an embodied perspective into all experiments, the studio aims at allowing both students and teachers to become more aware of our own points of view and exercise our empathy.
For their current project researching reproductions of whiteness in the reconstruction of the anatomical theater in Uppsala, AT - HH has received funding from the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts and a project grant from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
