Conversation panel: Associate Professor Polly Macpherson and Professor Igea Troiani

Please come along to our third Architecture Discourses event entitled 'Tacit Learning in Design' starting at 5pm on Monday 29 March where Professor Lara Schrijver from the University of Antwerp Faculty of Design Sciences will talk about her forthcoming book on this topic. She will be in conversation with Associate Professor Polly Macpherson (3D Design, ADA) and Professor Igea Troiani (Architecture, ADA).

Speaker: Professor Lara Schrijver
Title: Entangled thinking: Architecture, Material Agencies and Deep Structures

This lecture addresses the fundamentally entangled nature of architecture. While the modernist period would suggest that we look at architecture as singular expressions of visionary design, current thinking is more attuned to the complexities at play in realizing a project. The built environment as a whole is an amalgam of cultural preconceptions, urban regulations, material logic, and political decisions, among others. In this complexity, how can we address the architectural project as meaningful? Building on examples from history, contemporary practice, and teaching, this lecture explores a number of ways to critically examine the entanglements of architecture in discourse and design.

Lara Schrijver is a Professor in Architecture Theory at the University of Antwerp Faculty of Design Sciences. She is an editor for the KNOB Bulletin and has served as editor for Footprint journal and OASE. She is the author of Radical Games (2009) and co-editor of Autonomous Architecture in Flanders (2016). She was co-editor for three editions of the annual review Architecture in the Netherlands (2016-2019).
