PhD Course Research Positions in Architectural Technology – Objectives and Methodologies

Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangement af en begivenhed Organisation af og deltagelse i konference


This international research seminar aims to investigate and discuss different scientific positions in PhD projects that engage in questions concerning architectural technology. In this case architectural technology covers topics– across tectonics, environmental studies, construction design and fabrication and material studies. How are measurable data and qualitative phenomenon addressed? What do they have in common and what are their differences? How do scientific and qualitative research traditions; terminology, concepts, methodologies etc. evolve in this field? The seminar will be framed by a set of short lectures by researchers that represent different international research environments, traditions and theoretical background. (Also, few PhD students from these universities may attend). PhD projects/positions will be presented in order to see and understand how topics, research questions and objectives are defined, and how they correlate with the methodologies that are chosen. The international research seminar runs over two days and the intention is to: - Present and discuss (in plenum & groups) the projects of the participating PhD students. The theme is framed by four lectures that introduce different (interdisciplinary) research positions in architectural technology. Plenary discussions conclude the program of each day. - Provide an ’external’ view upon the presented research projects given by well-defined research traditions within the field. - Offer the opportunity to establish research contacts and network internationally. The participating PhD students will be asked to hand in a 300 word abstract and to deliver a poster that present the objectives and methodologies of their project.
