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.

Swensk In 2014, Architecture+Philosophy is presented in partnership with Swensk.

Architecture+Philosophy has presented an inspiring diversity of thinkers, makers, collaborators and speakers across a decade.
