Call for Papers: Thinking – Making. Perspectives on the growing prominence of making in architecture. Brussels, 18-19 February 2020

The Faculté d’architecture de l’Université Libre de Bruxelles is pleased to share the call for papers for the conference “Thinking – Making. Perspectives on the growing prominence of making in architecture” to be held in Brussels on 18-19 February 2020.
This conference explores the growing prominence of making in architecture, as manifested by architects who engage more directly in building practices, dealing more closely with materials and techniques. The colloquium proposes to investigate a diverse set of cases where making is re-evaluated and celebrated. It calls for papers along three lines of inquiry: (1) historical and theoretical perspectives on the evolution of the relationship between thinking and making, and its consequences in architecture; (2) case studies that assess the motivations and values of actors involved in making in the field of architecture; (3) investigations into the means and tools that aim at a closer relationship between designers, materials and built forms.
The full Call for Papers is available here.
Contributions are welcome in French or English. Abstracts (max. 3.000 signs all included) can be sent by 15 September 2019 at PenserFaire2020@gmail.com.
