Are we architects? — Joan Ockman
The Faculty of Architecture at the Brno University of Technology, in cooperation with the Brno Gallery of Architecture, the Student Organization of the Faculty of Architecture and the VI PER gallery in Prague, cordially invites you to attend a lecture “A Brief History of Architectural Research” held by Joan Ockman which is part of the lecture series “Are we architects? On Educational, Architectural Profession and Institutional Critique”
JOAN OCKMAN: A BRIEF HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH
When did research cease to be a sedulous, nerdy, gray activity undertaken in fluorescent-lit laboratories and dusty archives and become a fetishistic activity carried out in design studios? How and when did it overtake theory and history in the architecture school curriculum? This lecture will raise some questions about the ways architectural research and its curation are related to a contemporary digital-global society and will contrast the intellectual culture of architecture schools today and in the past.
