Sheffield School of Architecture will host a two day event of diverse talks, workshops and interventions
The annual theory forum at the Sheffield School of Architecture aims to create a cross-disciplinary platform of events that stimulate activity, encourage discussion and develop theory between a diversity of disciplines.
theory forum 09 will explore how architecture engages with the concept of ECOLOGY. The forum aims to collate various methodologies and operations conducted by related disciplines, as well as divergent fields of research. The aim for the theory forum 09: ECOLOGY will be to become a testing ground through which a common language of ECOLOGY can be formulated.
The event will take place on 13 and 14 November as an evolving habitat of adaptable spaces with diverse talks, workshops and interventions. It will be held at the Crookesmoor Building, the temporary home of the Sheffield School of Architecture.
