What is spatial articulation in architecture

What is research in architecture?

Architectural Research Practices
September 13, 2018,
Technical University Berlin In the Architectural Science Colloquium, a selection of research approaches will be presented under the content brackets »Practices of Architectural Research«. These demonstrate different approaches, scientific working methods and perspectives on architecture presented and discussed. The key question of the colloquia is: How do you research architecture? The answer to this question is not limited to the implicit application or enumeration of research methods. Instead, it should be made as transparent as possible how and with which tools an attempt is made to gain knowledge. The range of approaches to architectural research should be made clear. It can range from looking at drawings, analyzing building files, literature, built architecture to questioning people who use architecture - and beyond. So: How is the study viewed, analyzed, read, perceived, questioned? And: What knowledge do these practices lead to? The impetus for the discussion will be given by Peter Schneider with the lecture »The building as a document. Building research as a contribution to architectural science ”, Antje Fehrmann on the subject of“ Strategies for the collective use of space in medieval and modern church buildings ”and Klaus Platzgummer gave me“ Words and Headwords: On the Lexicalization of Architectural Knowledge ”. The colloquium is organized by the Architecture Science Network in cooperation with the Department of Designing Object Planning at the Technical University of Berlin and is curated and organized by Sebastian Feldhusen and Frank Schmitz. Research Culture in Architecture - International Conference on Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration in Architecture
September 27 to 28, 2018, Campus of the Technical University of Kaiserslautern (TUK)
As diverse as the questions are, the complex is architecture itself as a discipline and its scientific approaches in research are correspondingly complex and controversial. The research culture in architecture is the focus of the international conference “Research Culture in Architecture”, which is organized by the Department of Architecture at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. The guests will gain an insight into current research topics in lectures: Margitta Buchert from Leibniz University Hannover will speak about the subject of »Designing and Research«, among other things. Christian Derix, who heads the SuperSpace research department of the architecture office “Woods Bagot architects” in Sydney, explains how theory and practice can be combined. He and his team develop computer programs for design processes in architecture and urban planning that focus on spatial design and human use. Eike Roswag-Klinge from the Natural Building Labs at the TU Berlin presents how natural building materials can be used as the basis for designs. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan from RWTH Aachen University explains how robots will design individual production in the future. Caitlin Müller from the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, USA, and her research group "Digital Structures" are developing novel digital tools with which they combine static and architectural requirements for designs. In her lecture, the speaker will address this technology. Michael Hensel from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design takes a critical look at the fragmentation of the architectural discourse. He is looking for an active force in architecture that interacts dynamically with people and the environment. In addition, there will be other short lectures devoted to a wide variety of topics such as design methodology, digital timber construction, architectural theory, digitization, sustainability, perception, visualization, art and training in architecture. The conference will be held in English. The participation fee is 180, - Euro, reduced 90, - Euro. Registration closes on September 17, 2018. Architectural Science Forum
November 14th to 16th, 2018,
BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg Since it was founded in 2010, the Netzwerk Architekturwissenschaft e.V. has used the suffix "-wissenschaft" to gather different perspectives on architecture, each with its own objects and methods. Establishing a term is one thing, but what exactly does it mean? Is it naming, description and task at the same time? Against the background of the uniqueness of the object, namely the architecture and the irreducible variety of perspectives that are taken on it, it may seem neither possible nor sensible to start from a uniform methodology of architectural science. However, it must be possible to characterize the basic features of an architectural science if it is to be a systematic and descriptive undertaking and if it is intended to increase knowledge about the object. The 5th Forum for Architectural Studies is facing this challenge by inviting people to discuss the following questions together and in a controversial manner.
