Description du programme

What could architecture and philosophy have to do with one another? At first glance, not much it would seem. And yet an astonishing relation between them goes back as far as texts and treatises of ancient Greece and Rome. Ever since, it has shaped Romanic and Gothic cathedrals of the Middle Ages, affected the emergence of the architectural profession in the Renaissance, underlaid modernist ideas as well as critiques against it, and led to prolific experimental interactions between architects and philosophers throughout the second half of the 20th century.

As remarkably productive as profoundly problematic, this relation has now become academically and professionally institutionalized, confirming the continuing importance of an unlikely but influential bond between two fields apparently so far apart.
