Industries of Architecture: Relations, Process, Production
AHRA 2014/ 11th International Architectural Humanities Research Association Conference
13–15 November 2014, Newcastle University, SAPL, and various venues around Newcastle upon Tyne
This 2½ day conference invites architectural theorists, historians, designers and others to explore the industrial, technical and socio-economic contexts in which building is constituted that are all too often sidelined within the architectural humanities. Industries of Architecture will also host a number of open-structured debate-oriented workshops with the aim of bringing into the discussion those working in building, technology, law, practice management, construction or in industry together with researchers in the architectural humanities. In addition, the opening night features public screenings of a series of artists’ films that explore the production of architecture, including the work of Harun Farocki and Allan Sekula.
