Swedish Research School in Architecture
ResArc provides the possibilities for PhD students to present ongoing PhD projects at recurrent seminars as well as international symposia and biennials, designed especially for this purpose.
ResArc Symposia and Seminars
A biannual ResArc Symposium serves as a window of opportunity for doctoral students to develop their presentational skills to an international research audience.
Phd Student Initiated Activities
Peer collaborations are encouraged and supported within ResArc. Phd Students are welcome to form interest groups and initiate activities with financial support from ResArc. Groups can be formed around topics, methods or other fields of interest related to the PhD studies and participation in these group activities can earn credits.
Latest event: Co-laborations - Sharing Authorship and Space in Architectural and Urban Research
11-12 February 2016
The aim of this conference is to discuss the various thematic facets and effects of co-laboration, and to encourage co-writing in architectural research.
By problematizing the notion of collaboration, we seek on the one hand associations to the domain of division of labor – between authors, between researchers and writers, between architects and clients. On the other hand the term also arouses questions related to “laboratory” approaches to design, in the sense testing and communicating design (or design research) ideas in direct contact with the public. Hence, we would like to address the motivations and mechanisms of co-creation, co-making and co-writing, and how they form part of participatory practices.
