CfP: The Tools of the Architect. Delft and Rotterdam, 22-24 November 2017

Call for Papers: The Tools of the Architect. EAHN European Architectural History Network, International Thematic Conference.
22 – 24 November 2017. TU Delft and Het Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The European Architectural History Network (EAHN) is 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.
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. The conference will be structured along three thematic lines:

  1. The Instruments of the Architect  (i.e. the apparata and equipment of the architect)
  2. The Tools of Analysis (i.e. the devices to study architecture and the built environment in general)
  3. The Tools of Intervention (i.e. the devices to intervene in the built environment)

We welcome papers that consider the tools of the architect from this threefold perspective. Papers should be based on well-documented research that is primarily analytical and interpretative rather than descriptive in nature.
Abstracts (of 500 words) can be registered and uploaded on toolsofarchitect.com
Abstract submission deadline: 15 May 2017.
The full call for papers can be downloaded here and more information on the conference is availabe at toolsofarchitect.com
