Throughout its history architecture has had a major role in philosophy as a metaphor of logical-constructive activity. Since the crisis of modern architecture there has been a notable increase in the instances of architectural theorists turning to philosophy as they widen the critical question of the cultural function of architecture. Hitherto, however, there has been no integrated form of architectural-philosophical reflection, which can do justice to the role of architecture as the cultural praxis that people use to create a uniquely suitable environment (distinct from the purely natural world) for their needs, both changing and unchanging. This two-day conference will focus on different approaches to this topic by architectural theorists and philosophers and explore the relationship of theory and philosophy.
