Ph.D. Symposium: Divergence in Architectural Research

Call for Papers

Divergence in Architectural Research

The Ph.D. Symposium: Divergence in Architectural Research, will take place on the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, on March 5-6, 2020. The symposium, organized by the ConCave Ph.D. Program of the School of Architecture at Georgia Institute of Technology, seeks to create a platform for sharing current research in architecture with invited scholars and other doctoral students, in architecture and allied fields.

The symposium will engage the divergent aspects of architectural research as it is taking place today across epistemological frameworks, highlighting the emerging intersections in the following topics:

Architectural History, Theory and Society

Architecture, Culture and Behavior

Design Methods, Computing and Production

Design Technologies, Data and Performance

Urban Studies, Systems and Ecologies

We invite papers by doctoral students to present their ongoing research and hope to expand the conversation around the state of agency in architecture research today.

The symposium will act as a nexus for connections with established scholars and fellow researchers. Contributing researchers should be PhD students whose work emerges from the architectural domain. The symposium will take place March 5-6, 2020, on the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia.

Please submit your paper abstract (500 words max.) with a short biographical note (150 words max.) on the symposium website.

Submission opens: May 27, 2019

Deadline for Abstract Submission: September 7, 2019
