Description: For more than 2 decades, new scales of context have been a pervasive paradigm for Architecture. Suggesting infrastructural, ecological or political scale shifts for design, this paradigm has sparked a prevalent interest in emergent urban conditions, larger territories as well as interdisciplinary juxtapositions. In parallel, however, of paramount importance has been the accumulation of new questions in relation to architectural agency, disciplinary specificity and form. In an attempt to explore this proposition further, the seminar will concentrate on an alternative reading for the ideas of context and agency within 20th century architecture & urbanism.
