Event research concept: results through reversed interdisciplinary praxis 

This event seeks to invent new forms of collaboration connecting research, teaching and practice, locally and internationally, engaging 2nd and 3rd cycle studies. Whereas in architecture the contributions of “other” disciplines are often viewed as peridisciplinary services, we will explore a reversed interdisciplinary approach where the “other” discipline takes a central position.

  • new or reversed interdisciplinarity: work as architects under leadership of a different discipline, from a different disciplinary angle, along specific sub-themes;
  • working on a rooted site in multi-scale specific (alter)rural settings;
  • key-note conferences, workshops, round tables, exhibition, walks, debates;
  • a publication is intended to follow.
