Architecture Research Moments 2015-Jan-30-31

January 30th-31st  2015, Brussels

The network for European architectural research, ARENA, offers a shared platform that aims to promote, support, develop and disseminate high-quality research in all fields of architecture in the widest sense, including its links to building technology, environmental design, sustainable development, interior design, landscape architecture and urban design/urbanism, operating in domains from science and technology through to arts and humanities. One of the objectives is to support beginning researchers and PhD students in the field of architecture in improving the quality of their research.

Through ARM, the Architecture Research Moments, run by KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture, Campus Sint-Lucas, the ARENA network is hosting an international event at which early-stage researchers, doctoral students and post-docs are able to present their research project to experienced architectural researchers. After a successful first edition in January 2014, a second edition is organised in 2015.
The event is intended to bring together senior staff and early-stage researchers in order to improve research quality through intensive peer review at key intermediate stages. The Architecture Research Moments wish to contribute to the open and diverse field in architectural and artistic research, not giving any priority to one single approach and especially welcoming new and emerging fields, and hence including more established methods as well as focusing on newer fields such as research by design and through artistic practice. The event aims at stimulating researchers to interact mutually and benefit from participating in open discussions, whatever the stage of their research. Above all, ARM aims to be a lively, diverse and inclusive two-day event that brings together young researchers under the ARENA network!

Practical organisation:

Friday and Saturday, 30th-31st January 2015

KU Leuven, Faculty of Architecture, Campus Sint-Lucas, Paleizenstraat 65-67, B-1030 Brussels.

During the two-day event, participants will present their research for 30 minutes each. It then will be discussed and peer-reviewed by an international panel (composed of senior researchers and post-docs) for another 30 minutes. The presentation can include a Powerpoint, exhibition, performance, etc. Depending on the number of participants, parallel sessions will be organised if necessary. It is preferable that all participants should attend the full two days. On Friday evening, a dinner will be organised for all registered participants.
