Architecture and philosophy each create the spaces they're articulated in. Experimentation is thus generative, constructive. It makes new forms and new meanings. A set of instructional texts will open a new space of exchange between our two discplines as we perform architecture and philosophy from a distance - with you as collaborator. Join us.
We begin soon. You begin now. Look around you, look more closely and begin to observe. Be ready.
Two framing devices
"... We can begin from either end of an uneven, discontinuous spectrum either from the relation of the embodied mind to its singular self as it comes to recognise itself as distinct and as capable of thinking and doing..."
organism + environment
Dr Hélène Frichot
"... Constraints are the foundation for experimentation. The blank canvas is chaos, speed, forgetfulness. Structure sets you free to create new forms, new limits, new audacity within a framework that’s open to interpretation and re-appropriation..."
2012 was a reflective year for Architecture+Philosophy. Dr Hélène Frichot has marked the first year of her Assistant Professorship at KTH Stockholm. Esther Anatolitis joined Regional Arts Victoria as Director, recently launching the $2m project Small Town Transformations. And Collider, the 2012 textual collaboration with Ukrainian artist Oksana Chepelyk, has recently been published in the project's Kiev Biennale catalogue. Among all our involvements, publications, collaborations, juries and presentations, once again it's been a pleasure to work together across eight years among those inspiring spaces between architecture and philosophy.
In 2013 we return to our first love, as individuals as well as co-curators collaborating across a great distance: writing.

ARCHITECTURE+PHILOSOPHY creates a space of exchange between
the two disciplines. We welcome participants from any discipline
to engage with questions of contemporary urbanism, planning,
technology, space, system, design, distribution and other
issues in the productive overlap between the two disciplines.
We curate a diverse range of presentations, public, site-specifc and online projects, from research
students and established academics to architecture and planning
practitioners, policy makers, public artists and those working
in the world between theory, buildings and the city.
