Thomas Weaver is Editor at the AA School of Architecture in London. Please join us in the lab at 17:00 on Thursday, March 2 for his lecture “Research or Architecture.
Overview: This lecture offers a survey of architectural education through an examination of the momentous events of 1968. Its particular focus is the recent emergence of the concept of research, which in many ways defines the modern university over and above a dedication to any specific subject. The lecture will unpick the idea of research and in the process offer a polemic that counters its ubiquity against the more obvious attractions of architecture itself.
