Practices and Devices: Testing Limits

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


In part as a result of the Bologna Process, there has been extended debate in schools of architecture and the object of conferences and publications in recent years. Impossible to categorise fully within the limits of this paper, a survey of recent literature (Brandt, et al., 2013; De Vos, et al., 2012; Brisbin and Thiessen, 2013; Ramirez-Lovering, Alexander and Farrley, 2013, Partanen, et al., 2014) could however be claimed to reveal three different approaches to research through design: a more theoretical bias, an emphasis on teaching strategies and devices, and a focus on practice and conditions outside the academy. These three approaches - prioritising theory, teaching, or practice – can provide a preliminary context for examining one specific university architecture studio.
