COMMUNICATING ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH Seminar for phd students, supervisors and other researchers at Chalmers Arkitektur, Göteborg 2 June 10-17: communicating architecture research is arranged by arkitekturakademin.se -- as the second in a series of seminars about thematic directions and programme structures for collaborative research strategies, and the forming of a national research school, that will link architectural research to society and to disciplinary education in the 21st century. -- seminar theme: the communication of architecture research runs in many streams: amongst peers and collaborators, towards a broader and non-specialist academic field, through mass media and public events, and in relation to firms, industry and planning authorities. The ability to mediate and contextualise architecture research is a many faceted matter, the subject of architecture being itself transdisciplinary and eclectic by constitution. -- Through this one day seminar we would like gain a picture of ongoing phd research at the schools of architecture in Sweden, at the same time as providing an opportunity for phd students to make a condensed and clear cut presentation of their works. -- arkitekturakademin.se: Swedish architecture research network – established between the architecture schools of Chalmers Göteborg, KTH Stockholm, LTH Lund, and Umeå Universitet, and supported by FORMAS.

SPACES OF HISTORY / HISTORIES OF SPACE: Emerging Approaches to the Study of the Built Environment. A Conference at the University of California at Berkeley on April 30, 2010. In the past three decades, a growing number of scholars in the humanities and social sciences have turned their attention to space and to the built environment as a means of understanding historical processes. The writings of Lefebvre, Foucault, Gregory, Harvey, Soja, Latour and others have significantly reshaped the intellectual landscape across academic fields. Meanwhile, the subject matter and research methods of the history of architecture, landscapes and planning have become increasingly open to reassessment. Looking to survey and assess new approaches and analytical tools for studying the history of built spaces across a variety of scales and geographies, this conference will explore a range of questions pertaining to theory, methodology and pedagogy. How has the "spatial turn" in the humanities and social sciences transformed the ways in which history of the built environment is theorized and researched? -- More information on the forthcoming conference website at <arch.ced.berkeley.edu/events/conf/spacesofhistory2010>.
CALL FOR PAPERS: International Conference, COLOUR AND LIGHT IN ARCHITECTURE, Venice, Italy, 11-12 November 2010: Colour and light in architecture is an international two-day scientific conference for those interested in the history, human effects and design of colour and light (natural and artificial) on the built environment. It approaches the themes in their broadest sense, including aesthetics, psychology, history, design, physics, sustainability, emotions, performance and communication. Colour and light in architecture is the first international conference that has a major focus on the contemporary architectural processes related to the culture, design and perception and exposure to both natural and artificial lighting. The goal is to bring together a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary group of researchers and designers working in this domain so they can meet, share experiences, present research, and exchange ideas. -- The conference themes are focused on: History, Culture, Aesthetics and Representation of Colour&Light; Colour&Light Design between Theory and Praxis; and New Technologies for Colour&Light. Colour and/or light at architectural, urban and environmental scale will be examined in depth by these topics: 1.

PROTOTYPE–CRAFT IN THE FUTURE TENSE: will be co-convened by the Victoria and Albert Museum and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at the University of Dundee, and will explore the radical and multiple ways that creative people are experimenting with ideas. The symposium looks to excite the mind and nurture unusual conversations by presenting a diverse range of perspectives concerned with innovation and ingenuity. Prototyping is done in many industries - from cars to ceramics, medical equipment to publishing, architects to chefs - but the process, development and understanding for each is different. What can one discipline teach another about prototyping? What place does prototyping hold for scientists, artists, politicians, athletes or business managers? How can prototyping lead these and other disciplines to imagine and re-imagine the future? This event aims to reduce barriers by generating trans-disciplinary conversations, thus setting the scene for the forging of new partnerships and fresh understandings for contemporary and future craftspeople. We hope to bring together representatives from academia, public and corporate sectors to discuss the history, theory and practice of prototyping, thereby creating a sustainable network of like-minded individuals and organisations that will continue to develop prototyping as a tool for change. -- We hope you will be able to join us for Prototype – Craft in the Future Tense, and Crafts Festival Scotland, in Dundee 10-11 June 2010. Online registration is now open, and more information may be found on the event website, http://www.dundee.ac.uk/djcad/prototyping.
World in Denmark 2010: AS FOUND, Copenhagen, 17th and 18th June 2010. In landscape architecture and urbanism, architecture and heritage studies the concept site is gaining increasing attention. What is found on the site, the uses and the interpretations of it have become determining aspects for the theoretical investigation as well as the design, preservation and transformation of the post-industrial urban landscape. The notion As Found contains a verb and hence opens up the possibility for addressing the situatedness of reading and operating within sites. As a design approach As Found stresses the qualities of what is already there as a positive starting point for interaction between past, present and future states, between the act of preserving and that of transforming. AS FOUND is the optic through which the conference in Copenhagen, 17th and 18th June 2010 will revisit and reflect upon the everyday urban landscape. -- For more information: please visit <www.windk2010.dk>
