Theorist hostes the interdisciplinary symposium “theorist: diskurs / discourse – discussions on discoursivity” on the lack of discourse within the disciplines of architecture and urbanism.

Four topics have been discussed upon with a specific invited panel, ranging from following topics:”Urbanism – Planning Practices”, “Architecture and Society – Sustainable Building and Housing”, “The Production of Theory, Culture and Criticism”, as w ell as “Art and the City”. The interdisciplinary approach seeks to establish a critical framework to reflect upon architecture and allow theoreticians and practitioners alike to assume positions.

The discussions were held at the gallery Mark Müller between September 24th and 29th 2012, organized by Sasha Cisar.
