PhD: Oslo School of Architecture and Design Institute of Architecture

PhD position: The Material Lives of Buildings
The Institute of Architecture, AHO offers a PhD position on 20th century building culture, encompassing preservation, technology and history. Existing buildings make up the core for an archival-based, in-depth study of the history embedded in materials and building components, viewed in light of their authorship and ownership, the materials’ source of extraction, their production facilities, international transportation networks, and the social environment they were conceived within. This approach aims at shedding new light on established methods for the writing of architectural history. The archival material may include sources such as bid documents, building applications, trade magazines, building catalogues, and advertisements. The application should tentatively propose three buildings to explore. More information and the application can be found here. Applications are due 27 February 2022. 

The PhD Programme at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) will arrange an online information meeting about the AHO PhD Programme on Friday, 4 February 2022 at 14:00 CET. See www.ahophdlive.com for more information.
