What is Architecture?

umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicXml

As Umeå School of Architecture (UMA) enters its second decade, the school invites its teachers to respond to a fundamental provocation: what is architecture?

In this series of public lectures, UMA-teachers will share their interpretation of what constitutes architecture, its theory, and the methodologies through which these ideas are explored in studio teaching. The lectures will represent the plurality of approaches to architecture, which embodies the UMA collective.
