International Conference on Architecture as Built Criticism

October 14-15, 2023
China and Online

Can buildings themselves express criticism? If so, how do they achieve it? To whom is this criticism addressed? How are they legible? How do these criticisms impact society and culture? How do architects, critics or historians read these forms of criticism?

Following the International Conferences on Architectural Criticism in October 2021, and on Architectural Quality in October 2022, this year’s conference seeks papers that offer realized examples of architecture as built criticism.

Abstracts (max. 500 words) should outline a definition of architecture as built criticism, and name one case study. Abstracts should be submitted to by 14 July 2023

The selection to the conference is in two stages: first, the acceptance of the abstract; second, authors will develop their abstracts into draft
papers. Based on these papers, authors will be invited to speak in one of four sessions together with four selected keynote lecturers during the hybrid conference 14–15 October 2023, hosted by the School of Architecture, Tongji University, Shanghai, China.

More information can be found in the full call for papers here.
