The aae 2017 conference
Architecture Connects: Strategies for the co-production of architectural knowledge
Hosted by Oxford Brookes School of Architecture, Oxford, UK in collaboration with the association of architectural educators, aae2017 is an International Peer Reviewed Conference on ‘strategies for the co-production of architectural knowledge’ which will run from 6 to 9 September 2017.
The conference will expand the communities of practice in architectural education that were established by previous aae conferences by developing the lively discourse that took place around the themes of social engagement, live projects and design research. The conference is being organised in collaboration with Live Projects Network, designbuild Xchange, SEED Network, Centre for Public Interest Design, Design Corps, and db Exchange – international networks who share these concerns. These connections will expand the aae community and promote the quality, relevance and diversity present in this area of contemporary architectural education.
The overall theme “Architecture Connects” will enable exploration of ways to create positive dialogue and collaboration between architectural educators, students, practitioners, researchers, educational bodies, local communities and other disciplines. By viewing architectural education as a linchpin between universities and society, the conference mission is to improve communication and contribute new knowledge that is of mutual benefit to all parties.
