The Tools of the Architect


TU Delft and Het Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam, The Netherlands

22-24 November 2017

Abstract submission deadline: 15 June 2017

Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the EAHN’s fifth thematic conference The Tools of the Architect, to be held at Delft University of Technology and Het Nieuwe Instituut HNI (Delft and Rotterdam, The Netherlands) on 22-24 November 2017.

Architects have for their activities of drawing, writing and building always depended upon the potential of particular tools –ranging from practical instruments such as straight edges, French curves, compasses, rulers and pencils to conceptual tools such as working drawings, collages, photographic surveys, infographics, diagrams, casts and mass models.

As technologies advanced the toolbox of architects has changed and expanded. Today architects have an extraordinary array of sophisticated tools at their disposal but also rely on many of same tools as their 18th and 19th century peers. Working drawings, pencils and tracing paper continue to appear in the designer’s studio while their role and potential is being redefined.

This conference wants to focus on the changing practical and conceptual tools of the architect and their effect on the logos and praxis of architecture.


Conference Chairs: Tom Avermaete (Delft University of Technology) & Merlijn Hurx (Utrecht University)

Call for Abstracts / Special Collection on Digital Architectural History

Architectural Histories, in collaboration with ETH Zürich, invites paper abstracts for a special themed issue on Digital Architectural History.

The journal intends to offer a platform for articles that explore what a durable and truly digital architectural history could look like. Such history activates various forms of digital visualization, data collection and management, and digital research tools; it questions how these new means affect and shape the work of the historian; and it examines how this work is made available for assessment, consultation and debate. The aim of the issue is to arrive at accessible, sustainable and potentially interactive results that open up new critical perspectives in architectural history.

For more details about funding opportunities and application requirements, please download the full Call for Abstracts.

Deadline for submission is 1 October 2017.
