Where are we today regarding the way we produce and teach the theory and history of architecture, cities, and landscapes? Should we still give precedence to built realities, or should we focus on the agency that they reveal? What about the changes in the pedagogy to be expected from the development of digital tools? Are there still canons relevant to professional education in the design field? Last, but certainly not least, should we rethink the relationships among lecture courses, seminars, and studio? Four conversations among GSD faculty members and guest participants will deal with these questions and explore new perspectives on theory and history in design schools:

(1) History of Objects vs. Study of Agency and Media;

(2) Teaching Theory and History in the Digital Age;

(3) Global History vs. Canon;

(4) Theory/History and Studio Teaching

Sponsored by the Theory and History Platform and the PhD Program in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning.

Organized by Antoine Picon, G. Ware Travelstead Professor of the History of Architecture and Technology, and Michael Hays, Eliot Noyes Professor of Architectural Theory.
