Title:
Methods of Engagement: Architecture and the Humanities
Fall 2020 Discussion Series
Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities Initiative (AUHI)
Department of Architecture

This discussion series tackles questions related to the role of interdisciplinarity in contemporary architectural design and scholarship. It brings humanities-oriented researchers, artists, and writers from outside the discipline of architecture to the Faculty of Architecture to share their scholarly approaches to questions that are shaping debates both within and ancillary to architecture and the humanities.

Through this series, we hope to begin conversations and introduce new approaches and ways of thinking that might influence how we research, study, and practice. Are there ways in which interdisciplinary approaches can help address chronic imbalances and deficiencies in the ways architecture has been historically conceived, produced, and studied? Does interdisciplinarity risk eroding the specific methods of inquiry that make architecture unique?

The Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities Initiative (AUHI) comprises a group of designers, theorists, and historians at the University of Hong Kong. Collectively, we work to understand how buildings and cities shape our relationship to each other and to the world at large. One of the objectives of the AUHI is to address the complexities at work in architecture and urbanization through a range of sources; this lecture series is part of that attempt to open architecture to a broader cultural debate.


We have scheduled Zoom meetings for each of the dates.
