Tendencies in Architecture Research

 

February - September 2012

 

In comparison with other sciences, architecture research is a rather young discipline that was mainly developed along with the growth of the modern society, including a wide range of topics and scales: everything from technological issues and planning as well as self reflective analyses and critical stand points in general. Times are changing and new aspects are continuously added to the stock of architecture research.

 

The course Tendencies in Architecture Research provides opportunities for doctoral students to achieve an overview of trends, approaches and practices in contemporary architecture research. The course also provides a basic introduction to architecture theory, methodology and academic publication.

 

The objectives of the course Tendencies are:

 

1. To provide opportunities for doctoral students to get an overview of contemporary trends, approaches and practices in architecture research.

 

2. To provide a basic introduction for new doctoral students to architecture theory, methodology and academic publication.
