Research Culture in Architecture - International Conference on Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration

27 and 28 September, 2018. Hosted by FATUK - Faculty of Architecture, TU Kaiserslautern

rca 2018

The International Conference aims to discuss topics and methods in architectural research, focusing on their cross-disciplinary interrelations and their relevance to the design process itself. We are interested to see approaches to the development of a research culture in architecture. This conference will identify research topics and methods, encourages a research discourse and provides impulses especially for young researchers. Submissions could focus on the Faculty’s concept of the “good house”. This concept is linked to the theoretical tradition of a structural and material honesty in architecture, which sees aesthetic, ethical, technical and practical aspects as interdependent and reciprocal. Based on this architectural concept research approaches are to be developed and reflected.
