back to overview



17.09.2020, Do 9-15.30 Uhr


This conference seeks to examine the various approaches of research by design at PhD level. Based on the ERASMUS+ research project "PhD by Design" conducted by the University of Liechtenstein, Bergen School of Architecture, Chalmers University of Technology and KU Leuven we invite you to become a part of the debate and exploration into the mapping of conceptual principles, methodological approaches, and the development of curricula. The conference serves as a preparation to a special collection issue of AJAR.

Keynotes by Prof. Jonathan Hill (director MPhil / PhD Architectural Design at The Bartlett School of Architecture) and Ass. Prof. Gro Rødne (program leader of Making is Thinking at NTNU)
