Bringing architecture and philosophy face to face


Two lecturers from Lancaster University School of Architecture have organised a symposium to examine the ‘dialogue’ between architecture and philosophy.

'END: Architecture and Philosophy Face to Face’ has been arranged by Dr Andrea Canclini and Professor Richard Brook for Friday, 9 February, in collaboration with the bi-annual periodical and journal Khorein.

Khorein strives to deepen the dialogue between architecture and philosophy, even erase or transcend the boundary between the two disciplines. The symposium will take place on the launch of its latest issue.

Guests at the open-to-all event will include Khorein editors-in-chief Petar Bojanic and Snezana Vesnic (in person) and (online) the guest director of the next issue, Peter Eisenman, one of the leading living architects, a protagonist in the disciplinary cultural debate in the field of architecture, author of the Berlin Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in 2005.

The journal has already been presented as part of a talk at Harvard GSD in November and at the TU Berlin on 26 January, and will be presented at the AA in London with Kenneth Frampton on 12 February, followed by talk at the School of Architecture in Milan, Venice and Paris.

Full details and to register are found here.
