Production Sites: Resituating the culture of architectural knowledge

The Bartlett/UCL and University of Sydney

January 15 2015

Production sites is a symposium that scrutinises new cultures of architectural knowledge by examining the sites where knowledge is produced.  As a discipline, architecture has largely framed knowledge through the idea of building types, formal styles or sites for design action. Yet participatory design modes, digital technologies, and event-based models present alternatives that probe the divisions between real and  imaginary sites,  experiential and ideatic encounters, aesthetics and technology. The theme is a response to fundamental transformations in terms of how cultural knowledge and meaning are currently produced.

CALL FOR ARTICLES

Journal of Architecture and Urbanism 

(Taylor and Francis/ Routledge)

SPECIAL ISSUE: 2016 NO. 1

 

Theme of the issue

Rethinking Le Corbusier: Urban Design and History

 

Summary of the subject and premise

It is generally believed that Le Corbusier’s urban planning made a break with the past, and that the public spaces designed by him had nothing to do with anything that existed before – a conviction fostered by both the innovative character of his proposals and by the proliferation in his manifestos of watchwords that mask any evocation of the past. However, in his writings, Le Corbusier often mentioned the powerful analogy that exists between the architecture of other times and the logic of modern production; and although this causal relationship has often been demonstrated with respect to his architecture, it has rarely been extended to the public space. This special issue of the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism aims to fill that gap by systematically analysing Le Corbusier’s relationship with the history of urbanism. Articles may focus on his reflections on the public space of earlier times, the influence that this had on his own output, the relationship of his proposals with the pre-existing city, and other subjects that clarify the affinity that he established with the past within urban design. They may deal with any period of his career and training, but should offer new perspectives on his public spaces and their relationship with history.

The Department of Architecture and Urban Studies at Politecnico di Milano aims at increasing its size and strength within the framework of the University plan to raise the number of International Faculty positions and widen the offer of Master level courses delivered in English.

The Department invites applications for one new full time permanent position at the Associate professor level from individuals who can contribute to the Department’s strategic research plan by a demonstrated expertise in the area of architectural design.

The Associate professor will be asked to work in a research line which deals with the whole thematic field of architectural design, including relationship between different scales. It consists of theoretical and methodological topics - regarding problems and techniques about contemporary design and changing environment and about practical and experimental ones, aimed to handle typological, compositional, procedural and constructional features at different architectural scales.

Applicants must have a position equivalent to the Italian “Associate Professor” and must work in an international university or research institution since at least three years. The successful candidate will be expected to teach at graduate level, in English, to develop and sustain an independent research program, mentor graduate students and provide service to the University.

The application, composed of:
•    Application letter addressed to the head of the Department
•    Motivation letter
•    Curriculum Vitae
•    Description of research interest and activity and of teaching skills and experience

has to be sent by e-mail to the Director of the Department

The Royal Institute of British Architects announces an international symposium on architectural photography in conjunction with the first major retrospective of the British architectural photographer Edwin Smith (1912-1971), whose prolific work helped redefine the notion of post WW II Britishness.

The symposium will honour the legacy of Robert Elwall (1953-2012), an acclaimed British historian of architectural photography and curator, since 1976, of the RIBA's Photographs Collection that now bears his name.  With some million and a half architectural images, the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection is one of the most extensive resources for the study of the influence of photography on architecture and the creative process.

The symposium will be held 13 -14 November 2014 in London.

“Composite Cities”

7th edition of EURAU

Faculty of Architecture of Istanbul Technical University

November 12 2014 - November 15 2014

Event web site

web site thumbnail available soon

The theme refers to the compositeness of our cities occurring in various forms and various scales; ranging from ever increasing complexity of one-through new urban emergences adding up to the existing urban environment and continuously redefining our urban experience- to tranquility of another-still holding different urban conditions stitching together to an enriched urban experience. Thus the conference aims to enable a medium to discuss the complex relationship between urban form and urban experience through the composite character of our cities explained in four topics-possible states of composite being: hybrid city, morphed city, fragmented city  and mutated city. The conference is expected to evolve around the question of “how?”s of architectural practice for the composite city. Hence, the essentials of architectural realities- scale, order, space, place, program, content, identity …- will define the backbone of the discussions.

The abstract submission deadline is extended to April 30, 2014
