Stemming from the Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) 2015 conference, the open seminar series ‘This Thing Called Theory’ continues to explore the status of theory in architecture, proposing theory as a form of architectural practice that opposes the instrumentalization of its use.
After Making Theories (2017) and Double Crossing (2018), the third event in the series, Theory and Histories, proposes a discussion on the current proliferation of architectural history narratives, and of the different ways of constructing, curating and communicating them.
The full programme of the event is available here.
Event Organisers: Doreen Bernath and Teresa Stoppani
