Architectural Design Research Symposium,


August 29 2014 - August 30 2014

This symposium provides a forum to reflect on the emergence of research through design in the context of Architectural Education and Critical Practice. As articulated in recent publications and on the evidence of postgraduate activity around the globe, design as the primary vehicle for research innovation has entered a confident and mature stage.

What are the themes that emerge from this body of work? What tactics have evolved through conceiving design as the core research method? What are the "unique national features and mentalities that continue to exist and flourish"? (Koolhaas, 2013)

The 2014 Venice Biennale and its theme of Fundamentals, provides a stimulating space in which to address these questions. This event is associated with the New Zealand exhibition at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. The symposium will be held at the venue of the NZ exhibition, the Palazzo Pisani Santa Marina, Calle de le Erbe, Cannaregio.

Interested participants are invited to submit a 1000 word presentation.

Autonomy Reconsidered: Ethics in Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape

ISPA 2014 Conference

Delft, Netherlands

July 09 2014 - July 11 2014

Contemporary philosophy and architecture discourse alike marginalize the ethical dimension of architecture.  Yet, it seems that the ethical dimension in both architecture and philosophy has been compromised because both disciplines have not established a clear interdisciplinary understanding of autonomy. Together, and in service to both fields of study, we must reconsider what autonomy means for both architecture and philosophy, or rather, for architecture philosophy.

Riverine: Architecture and Water

University of Kent, Canterbury, UK

June 26 2014 - June 28 2014

Human settlements may be divided broadly between inland ones often located on high ground, such as the hill towns of Urbino and Jerusalem, or those of inland plains such as Brasilia and Novosibirsk, and those located on waterways, on rivers close to the sea. We are interested in the latter, and seek to tease out and explore architectural, planning, artistic and literary backgrounds to cities as diverse as London, Rotterdam, New York, Venice and Alexandria; in other words, we are interested in human settlements whose origins depend upon rivers.

For a decade, the World in Denmark conferences have brought prominent interna- tional designers and planners to Copenhagen.

This 10th conference investigates the role of Denmark – or more broadly the Nordic countries – in the world.

Scholars and practitioners are invited to submit abstracts that discuss cultural encounters in open space design and planning.

International key note speakers from landscape architec- ture, urban design and urbanism will reflect on recent interventions in the urban landscape.
