Approaching Research Practice in Architecture
The two-day international PhD event "Approaching Research Practice in Architecture. Five Questions" takes as its point of departure the growing interest in practice-oriented research in architecture in the broadest sense, including expanding modes of work in well-established areas of architectural research such as architectural history and theory or urban and landscape studies. The event is a collaboration between KTH, TU Munich and TU Delft, hosted by Meike Schalk (KTH), Torsten Lange (TUM), Andreas Putz (TUM) and Frank van der Hoeven (TU Delft).

This two-day event, hosted by TU Munich, KTH Stockholm and TU Delft, takes as its point of departure the growing interest in practice-oriented research in the broadest sense, including expanding modes of work in well-established areas of architectural research such as architectural history and theory or urban and landscape studies. This recent “turn to practice” manifests itself, first and foremost, in the flourishing of empirical and performative approaches. It can also be noted in the shift towards contemporary history, critical heritage studies etc., which employ a host of experimental methods, and forms of dissemination. Finally, the workshop also recognises the emergence of research practices by practitioners. Our goal is to reflect upon the multitude and diversity of current research practices. This event also marks the beginning of a doctoral course on research practices.
