Eva Perez de Vega Presenting at ASCA


Faculty Eva Perez de Vega will be presenting at the ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture) annual conference next week in Seattle, a paper that explores the relationship between the disciplines of Architecture and Philosophy called;”Disciplinary Promiscuity and Its Discontents”. Toshiko Mori is the Keynote speaker.

Conference Overview

As intellectual practice, architecture embodies unique ways of knowing. We use many terms to describe the creation of new architectural knowledge, among them research, scholarship and creative practice. Sometimes these terms are used interchangeably and without precision. As we confront real world crises, and changing expectations for research production within universities, it is important to ask more precisely: what are the unique shapes of the new knowledges that are particular to architecture?
