EAAE Annual Conference Proceedings 2023-08-30T00:00:00+01:00 Mia Roth Open Journal Systems <p>The European Association for Architectural Education's annual gatherings reach beyond the geographical boundaries of our individual institutional settings, addressing all educators, researchers and administrators who engage themselves for high quality architectural education. Our goal is to foster an international community of people and of institutions dedicated to the critical and constructive dialogue on all aspects of teaching and researching on architecture.</p> What can architecture do? 2023-08-22T18:45:37+01:00 Béatrice Mariolle <p>Some territories encounter an accumulation of difficulties, despoiling of resources, slavery, maltreatment, then abandonment with pollution, poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, diseases... The mining basin of the Nord and Pas-de-Calais is a good illustration. It was exploited from the beginning of the 18th century for its coal. Despite its recognition in 2012 as a Unesco World Heritage Site, it remains a territory in economic decline and whose social indicators are alarming.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Practicing care through architecture: participatory research as a tool to subvert power relations 2023-08-22T18:47:37+01:00 Nadia Bertolino <p>The paper questions to what extent architectural research can act as tool to subvert power relations and to enable the critique of capitalism that, according to Meiksins Wood “requires a constantly renewed critique of the analytic instruments designed to understand it”.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Who is in?: More-than-living constituents of the architecture studio 2023-08-22T18:56:59+01:00 Erenalp Büyüktopcu Ayşe Şentürer <p>During the educational process of architecture, the studio space generously hosts both living and non-living constituents, including students, instructors/lecturers, invited individuals, digital or physical agents, owned/hacked/open-sourced components and strategies, online or offline tools, and more.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research by Design at the Crossroads of Architecture and Visual Arts: Exploring the Epistemological Reconfigurations 2023-08-22T18:59:12+01:00 Marianna Charitonidou <p>The paper aims to explore the potentials of research by design in architecture and visual arts. The main objective of the paper is to analyse the different models and epistemological positions advanced in the academic milieus as far as the doctoral research by design is concerned, to explore the differences and similarities between the research by design in the field of architecture and in the field of visual arts.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Action research and commoning: positioning architectural research in (or with) local grassroot group 2023-08-22T19:00:45+01:00 Tabassum Ahmed Ioanni Delsante <p>The proposed contribution is based on two case studies where architect-researchers and local actors partner as collaborators in commoning efforts. The first case develops around an ‘urban common’ (as named by the local council) Moruzzi Road in Pavia, Italy. The second one involves reappropiation of a disused open space as a community orchard at Huddersfield, UK.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Topological deformability in architecture, or how to learn about differences 2023-08-22T19:03:06+01:00 Maja Dragišić <p>The main question of this paper is related to whether and in what way we understand the topological characteristic of deformability in numerous texts and examples of architectural theory and practice in the period from the beginning of 1990s until today. Using the concepts from topology shows how the architectural discourse changes the meaning of a mathematical and philosophical concept, determining it within its own discipline.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The Complexity and Contradiction Conflict in Research and Practice: The Case of Public-Private Interface Configuration 2023-08-22T19:04:59+01:00 Šárka Jahodová <p>The disassociation between research and practice in architecture and urban design is a recognized issue, leading to an ongoing academic debate on the credibility of the field (Dovey, Pafka 2016; Alexander 2010; Carmona 2014a; Palermo 2014). The most influential text shaping the architectural practice has very limited scientific rigour and is more of a normative interpretation of subjective observations (Marshall 2012).</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Regenerating public housing in Italy within the Next Generation EU fund.

The case is an enclave between different limits: a valley near the border with Austria, located on the edge of north of Veneto region with an ethnic-linguistic heritage of Germanic matrix, administratively migrated in 2017 to Friuli Venezia Giulia region.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Design process innovation against the epistemicide 2023-08-22T19:11:56+01:00 Monica Alexandra Munoz Veloza <p>The idea of epistemicide, harshly criticized by the Portuguese sociologist Boaventura de Sousa Santos, is the murder of alternative and subordinate knowledge that modernity and its scientific knowledge have systematically carried out over time. In academic schools and architectural studios, the epistemicide is visible when the “element of repetition” inherent to the profession mentioned by Schön in 1983 is confused with homogeneity, standardization, and monotony.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Architectural design studio: Embracing a transdisciplinary approach 2023-08-22T19:13:27+01:00 Christina Panayi Effrosyni Roussou Nadia Charalambous <p>The Co-creation design studio, at the Department of Architecture, University of Cyprus, has been acting as a meeting place for students, educators, researchers, citizens, and external stakeholders since 2021, aiming to bridge gaps between architectural research, pedagogy, civil society, and local governance bodies through a transdisciplinary pedagogical framework.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Action based research for capacity building of neighbourhood communities 2023-08-22T19:16:06+01:00 Vera Marin Daniela Calciu Oana Paval <p>This paper aims to present action research experiences in Romanian context and reflection on architectural education contribution to helping neighbourhood communities. The project entitled Urban Education Live - Innovative Urban Education in Live Settings - meant applying social mapping tools with a civic initiative group and then defining a common agenda that was presented to the local authorities as the first neighbourhood development plan in Romania.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mental Spaces /Real Spaces - A Digital Archive 2023-08-22T19:18:37+01:00 Luísa Sol <p>Mental Spaces / Real Spaces - a Digital Archive, is a community research project supported by the government programme Bairros Saudáveis launched during the pandemic. It involved the local community of the Alto dos Barronhos, the largest social housing estate in the municipality of Oeiras, in a set of participatory actions between Architecture and Mental Health with the local community. Questioning what it is to inhabit social housing, the public space was transformed into a space of critical redefinitions.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mountains in motion, visions in nutshells 2023-08-22T19:20:15+01:00 Alisia Tognon <p>Architectural research is defined as community practice and for communities.

With the advent of the era of mass tourism, it is important to understand the perception, preference and identity of local people towards the village space from the perspective of local gaze, in order to maintain the characteristics of the village and perpetuate its vitality.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The Positionality and the Promise of Architecture(s) 2023-08-22T19:24:54+01:00 Hongye Wu <p>We are living in an age where the digital avant-garde has been blooming in the practice of architectural discipline. This is an age when the inevitable march of digital technologies, especially the mobilization of artificial intelligence, has increasingly gained momentum. For these reasons, it is even more challenging for architects and researchers to tackle their roles in this tendency.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research for an architect as a specialized citizen 2023-08-22T19:26:19+01:00 Şebnem Yücel <p>If he was not dead already, the pandemic has definitely killed Howard Roark. The time of this heroic character of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead is over. Today architectural community has departed from an understanding of the architect as a godly figure who singularly blesses the world with his prophetic vision. Instead, now is the time of the architect as a specialized citizen—one who is an integral part of the social and natural ecosystem of the world.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The power of an architect’s competences in interdisciplinary research: the case of the Belgian-Tanzanian IUC partnership 2023-08-26T10:57:26+01:00 Els Hannes Rob Cuyvers <p>In answer to the calls’ questions in ‘Roots of Architecture(s)’, we explain the ‘Ways of Research’ in a concrete case, with a focus on its interdisciplinary dimensions, its envisioned tangible social impact, its embedded communities’ participation and its social urgency. We identify the role of an architect’s competences in the process prior to the start of the project, and we argue that these critical, creative and collaborative problem-solving skills have been (and still are) of vital importance for its success.</p> 2023-08-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Program, Speakers, Venue 2023-08-22T19:59:49+01:00 Politecnico di Torino <p class="p1">We thank all speakers, respondents, moderators, student volunteers, colleagues and administrative staff from Politecnico di Torino, Department of Architecture and Design who provide the venue and made this event possible, to our general sponsor Velux.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Aligning the pedagogy of postgraduate professional practice courses to develop the meta-competencies required of Architects today 2023-08-22T19:32:33+01:00 Claire Mullall Catherine Brown Molloy <p>Postgraduate professional practice courses (part 3) play a critical role in the registration process for Architects. However, there is little research published on the pedagogy of these courses nor their suitability to the evolving demands on the multifaceted role required of Architects today. As a result, there is a need to reassess Part 3 courses considering the meta-competencies required in Architect’s diverse ‘ways of practice.’</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Architectural Ethnography or On The Architect’s filter in using Ethnography 2023-08-22T19:44:53+01:00 Paola Briata Gennaro Postiglione <p>‘Architectural ethnography’ has increasingly been a focus of attention thanks to studies by Albena Yaneva and practices and research carried out by Momoyo Kaijima with her Atelier Bow Wow. Starting from these well-known examples, this essay reviews the literature related to ethnography when used by architects, planners, and researchers interested in forms, materiality, and uses of space in everyday life.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 II level training and construction of scientific and didactic contents: The case of the “Master Executive: Mountain Able.

One of the most evident consequences in the field of Architect training is the need to build courses of the ever-greater specialization, especially in the post-graduate phase.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The Glass House Revisited 2023-08-22T19:48:02+01:00 Stamatina Kousidi <p>If modernist architecture allowed for a continuous space between building and landscape, nurturing the understanding of the “forest edge as man’s ideal habitat and as a mythical image” (Geddes 1982), today the boundaries between the artificial and natural, the urban and the sylvan, are increasingly folding in.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Participation of stakeholders in open architectural and urban planning competitions: procedure model and application in Croatian context 2023-08-22T19:49:40+01:00 Rene Lisac Kristina Careva <p>The participation of society in public spaces issues, though advocated for decades, experiences an increase in recent years. Citizen participation in Croatian spatial planning appears to be mostly declarative and formally takes place in the final stages of planning. On the contrary, the full benefits of integrative planning would be if participation of all sectors (civil, academic, economy and management structures) is continuous, especially important in the initial planning phase - forming the basic intentions.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Architectural Practice in the Digital Age: Balancing Adoption and Adaptation 2023-08-22T19:51:35+01:00 Damir Mance <p class="p1"> </p> <p class="p2">The digital age presents both challenges and opportunities for the architectural profession. Architects must navigate the integration of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and digital design tools while adapting to the evolving scope of their practice. This paper investigates the balance between adoption and adaptation in architectural practice, exploring strategies for architects to effectively engage with the digital landscape while maintaining the integrity of their profession. The outcomes of fully embracing new technologies and methodologies are contrasted with the approach of modifying existing practices to accommodate digital advancements, considering the implications for the architectural profession.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Nomad Science of Remote Intensities for Architectural Doctorates 2023-08-22T19:53:18+01:00 Thomas Mical <p>Nomad Science proposes the lived displacement of apparatuses of state science, drawing out and connecting knowledge systems.

Researchers either try to dig inward within the boundaries or seek intersections outside the boundaries. But in another context, in ancient China, the design of architecture was based on algorithms (a branch of mathematics), which is obviously an independent system of extra-disciplinary.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Introduction 2023-08-19T12:32:52+01:00 Oya Atalay Franck <p>We are all overwhelmed with the enormous frequency and power of the many challenges that we are confronted with, in this time called by some the “anthropocene” – the geochronical era in which humans have become one of the most important factors influencing biological, geological, and atmospheric processes on Earth. Climate change continuing – it seems – unhindered, the Corona pandemic not yet fully overcome (and new pandemics possibly at the doorstep), biodiversity endangered, war and natural disasters, uncanny developments in artificial intelligence with great significance also for the scientific production of knowledge: all these “wicked problems” require immediate solution and powerful action. That is where we stand: in a sliding, rising, sinking, shaking, moving sociocultural landscape.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 School of Architecture(s) 2023-08-19T12:37:02+01:00 Oya Atalay Franck Paolo Mellano Carla Bartolozzi Michela Barosio <p>Architecture as a discipline entangles multiple interactions between the physical world, technology, and the organisation of the cultural and social environment of the profession, but its multidisciplinary character is not the only multi-dimension to be investigated. In the era of post-architecture, moving towards an autonomous subjectivity, opening up the field, and questioning the plurality of the discipline is crucial: not just Architecture but Architecture(s). Furthermore, European Schools of Architecture offer a wide variety of meanings of the term Architecture in their curricula. For all these reasons, it is urgent to discuss a broadening of the term itself to understand the positioning of architectural education in the contemporary global world.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 “Self-efficacy” as a value in architectural pedagogy 2023-08-19T12:41:16+01:00 Naime Esra Akin <p>This research is about designing a tool to support the format of the pinups for: increasing the performance of the presenting/ commenting activity as the main activity of exposition in architectural education.

A fundamental problem is the difficulty of determining the essential knowledge and skills provided to the architectural student within the framework of education and whether the foundation provided by education can provide a structure suitable for the integration of new, non-scoped knowledge and skills into professional practice.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Digital Survey as a Method for Creative Thinking in Architectural Design 2023-08-22T18:27:26+01:00 Kévin Jacquot Özlem Lamontre-Berk <p>Architectural surveying has always been the purview of the architect, despite the fact that it is practiced by other disciplines. Technological innovations in surveying have led, at least in France, to an ambivalent relationship with these new methods of documenting the existing. Although very rare in teaching, learning digital surveying techniques is nevertheless inevitable for future architects who will be required to handle these tools directly or to interact closely with their operators.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Affirmation of a Discipline: Ephemeral Tectonics of an Architecture Lesson 2023-08-22T18:29:25+01:00 Siniša Justić <p>Architecture study teaching process is technical, and exact, where architecture is measurable. But architecture studies must remain open to processing abstract values itself. Architecture is rigorous but anexact*. Presented course units encourage work on elaborate execution of an ephemeral idea.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Ethnographic Ways of Architectural Knowing: A Pre-design Pedagogy for Radical Inclusion 2023-08-22T18:31:23+01:00 Samir Pandya <p>The global response of architectural education to recent calls for social and epistemic justice has been to inaugurate the project of decolonising pedagogy and curricula, a project which admits a historical failure to respond to diverse social needs. This paper proposes ethnography as a decolonial method capable of disrupting — and evolving — normative architectural approaches to ‘site’.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Stumbling as a praxis of design practice: a pedagogical experiment in “Theory and Critic of Architectural Action” 2023-08-22T18:33:14+01:00 Caterina Quaglio Edoardo Bruno <p>The Thesis Seminar “Theory and Critic of Architectural Action” is a multidisciplinary didactic experience designated to study the methodological aspects related to developing a research project in architectural history and/or design, and notably aimed at developing Master’s Degree Graduation. The Seminar identifies six key nodes in research on project practice and takes a multidisciplinary view to tackle them critically.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The Necessity of Big Beautiful Mistakes 2023-08-22T18:38:13+01:00 Gro Rødne Johanna Gullberg <p>There is a well-known need for innovative ways of tackling the burning challenges of today. Complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity are key competences for the future according to World Economic Forum, 2020. It is therefore problematic that we all – not least architecture students – are embedded in friction-free systems and technologies that cloud the complexities of urgent issues.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 A Cosmopolitan Architectural Education 2023-08-22T18:35:15+01:00 Massimo Santanicchia <p>This paper is the result of multiple dialogues conducted among students and educators part of the Nordic Baltic Academy of Architecture. These conversations were initiated by three questions: What skills should students have after studying architecture? How should these skills be taught? How can architectural education be of special importance to our society?</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Bridging methods and disciplines: an Architectural Pedagogy for Rural Areas Communities 2023-08-22T18:40:38+01:00 Stefano Sartorio <p>Architectural pedagogy in rural areas necessitates a thoughtful consideration of both methodological and disciplinary approaches within educational process. Inner areas, which suffers from constant depopulation, lack of connection, and richness of historical/natural heritage, are entangled to a complex multiplicity of design scenarios.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 A new approach to teaching architectural and urban design: Reformulation of city spaces with virtual tools and long-distance influences 2023-08-22T18:42:14+01:00 Ewa Stachura Amos Bar-Eli <p>The spatial interventions in city heritage areas today require careful consideration of many issues. Solutions require a deep understanding of social, cultural, economic, architectural, historical, and more that make up the fabric of cities. Sometimes, more than just knowledge and design skills, what is required is to anticipate, to compromise a vision of possible memories and future recollections. The paper presents a teaching method elaborated and tested during an international student design workshop in Tel Aviv (Israel) and Cracow (Poland).</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The merit of teaching introductory architecture courses in general education 2023-08-22T18:44:16+01:00 Arno Suzuki <p>People must be aware of architecture and related sciences and technologies, and architectural education to nurture conscious citizens is as important as it is for professionals. A recent quantitative survey with 2,000 respondents in Japan revealed only about 15% are interested in ‘shelter’ out of three essentials in everyday life: food, clothing, and shelter. They did not acknowledge architecture as essential in their lives.</p> 2023-08-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023
