Workshop

“Architecture, Geo-Politics and Scientific Knowledge”

We kindly invite you to our public workshop “Architecture, Geo-Politics and Scientific Knowledge,” which will be held on Wednesday 24 January 2018, at 2pm in the Audit Room (Old Lodge), King’s College, Cambridge.

This workshop will investigate variegated relationships between architecture, broadly conceived, and historically, geographically and geo-politically inflected forms of scientific knowledge. How are architectures and urban spaces produced in relation to such epistemic objects as information, life, ecology, environment, organism, postmodernism, obsolescence, or even green belts? How do distinct ways of knowing the world reflect and shape the widely divergent forms of politics and geopolitics enacted by architects, urban designers and spatial practitioners?

Speakers include: Peg Rawes (The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL ) Léa-Catherine Szacka (Manchester School of Architecture, University of Manchester) Yimin Zhao (Department of Geography and Environment, LSE ) Sandra Jasper (Department of Geography, University of Cambridge) Maros Krivy (Department of Geography, University of Cambridge)

The workshop will be followed by dinner
