The session invites a group of conference participants to assess recent experiments at the periphery of that which can be called architecture. Why is it important for institutions to support these experiments? Does it remain necessary to distinguish these experiments from what’s understood as the core curriculum? If so, how should we understand the relationships between the centers and the peripheries? Can we point ahead to experiments that have not yet been conducted?
