Doctoral course: Approaching research practice in architecture

13.10.-14.10.2021

This two-day event, hosted by TU Munich and KTH Stockholm for the second time, takes as its point of departure the growing interest in practice-oriented research in the broadest sense, including expanding modes of work in well-established areas of architectural research such as architectural history and theory or urban and landscape studies. The online event is open for interested listeners.
