Architectural Studies is a biannual conference series held by the Department of Architecture at Yeditepe University. The conference intends to facilitate intellectual exchange on disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship and practices of architecture through the subcategories foundations, positions, and words. (1) Foundations denote dispositions that act as the limits and potentials of architectural knowledge; (2) Positions entail setting a critical perspective within architectural scholarship and practices; (3) Words highlight the practice of writing (on/in) architecture in manifolds forms including criticism, narration, and documentation. Through its framework and biannually varying thematic foci, the conference encourages contributions that critically engage with the existing frameworks and convictions that shape architectural discourse, practices, and constructs.
