The call for papers, Northernness
The Nordic Association of Architectural Research (NAF/NAAR) and the University of Oulu, Oulu School of Architecture (OSA), proudly join forces in organizing the NAF/NAAR Symposium 2020 and the 12th Annual Symposium of Architectural Research 2020 (ATUT2020), which will highlight and discuss the special features of the Northern context and architectural research in the Nordic countries.
NAF/NAAR (http://arkitekturforskning.net/na/index) is an independent association of architectural researchers from universities and schools of architecture in the Nordic countries. NAF/NAAR symposia are held once a year.
They are important platforms for critical reflection on architecture and architectural research. To ensure their dynamic and democratic format, the events are conceptualized and organized in collaboration with various partners and are hosted by a different university or school of architecture.
The symposium offers world class keynote lectures from experts in architectural research:
- Thordis Arrhenius is Associate Professor at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. For more information: https://www.kth.se/profile/thordis?l=en
