Swedish Research School in Architecture
Theories in Spatial Morphology
October - December 2016
The course Theories in Spatial Morphology (5 + 2,5 ECTS) gives a comprehensive introduction to the field of theory in spatial morphology with some in-depth investigations on particular contemporary theories.
The objectives of the course are to give PhD-students a good introduction to the field as a whole and its history and origins so that they will be able to position their own work as well as others in relation to different directions and traditions within the field. The students will also be given a developed presentation of the principal traditions of the field with emphasis on some contemporary theories with particular interest for architectural research. The second module will give an introduction to spatial morphology as a research methodology where the students will be given opportunities to develop ideas and reflect on how this could be applied and be made to support their own PhD-projects.
Module 1: October 12-13, November 16-17
Module 2: December 14-15
