Fourth Aachen Conference: Identity of Architecture – Construction

Thursday, January 30, 2020, 9:00am

Positions on the Significance of Construction in Architecture

The Teaching and Research Area Spatial Design and the Department of Building Construction at RWTH Aachen University are jointly organizing the 4th Aachen Conference “Identität der Architektur – Identity of Architecture.“ The annual conference, which has a different focus each year, is examining the question of the identity of architecture – a question concerned with the self-understanding of the discipline that is directed first and foremost at its practitioners, the architects.

The participating architects will have submitted a relevant design or constructional contribution for the conference under the respective topic. The presentation of the built example thus provides the opportunity to examine in particular questions on methods, tools, and processes that have determined the design and construction of the example in question.

The conference takes place over two days. There will be a series of 15-minute lectures followed by short discussions and a panel discussion held at the end of each day.

Location Faculty of Architecture, Reiff Museum, Schinkelstraße 1, 52062 Aachen
