  • symposium: Conflict of Interests

    Conflict of Interests
    new york NEW YORK

    This event will be the first in a series of symposia investigating the role of applied research in architecture. Nestled in an intersection between practice and theory, applied architectural research can potentially work as a space for overlap and negotiation. This event will formally make explicit the opportunities for architectural research to bridge the gap between the archive and the laboratory.

    “Apply: Conflict of Interests,” with 
David GISSEN, Thomas KEENAN, Janette KIM, Mpho MATSIPA, Sarah WHITING, Mabel WILSON, Kazys VARNELIS, & Mark WASIUTA
    Friday, 04/26
    2.00pm / 200, Fayerweather
    1172 Amsterdam Ave
    New York, New York 10027

    Taking advantage of the diversity in the research being tackled by the students of the AAR, a series of specific experts related to each topic will be invited to present and discuss their work. This annual event will continue to critically engage the question: What is applied research in architecture?

    Format
    The event will be organized as a series of conversations—five distinctive panels—discussing the limits of applied research in contemporary practices and academia. After a brief presentation, each guest will engage in dialogue with a faculty member to develop further insights into their specific zones of research: architectural pedagogy, new forms of urbanity, historic reconstruction and the political context of the humanities. The final panel will map the various conflicts of interests between the four guests in a roundtable discussion—moderated by the director of the Advanced Architectural Research program.
