Symposium: Writing and Critical Thinking in Architecture 4
Date: Friday 25 March 2011
Venue: Lecture Hall
At a time of rapid technological change and a pervasive global intelligence, where greater numbers of new books, magazines and journals – in print and online – are being published, this event aims to look at different approaches to writing in and about architecture. The aim is to articulate the role of writing in the realm of contemporary architecture and culture and in reformulations of practice. Participants reflect upon the possibility of criticism in these new modes of production of architectural knowledge.
This enquiry into writing and architecture began with a series of seminars in the autumn, exploring writing from the various yet overlapping standpoints of author, editor, critic and journalist and examining intersections with visual art/design practice.
