Reassembling the Profession Symposium
On the occasion of the release of Assembling the Architect: The History and Theory of Professional Practice by Professor George B. Johnston, this symposium will convene scholars and architects to critically consider ongoing transformations of architectural practice.
Architectural practice is constantly changing. Economic and technological forces are actively reshaping professional assumptions, and modes of practice in coming decades may vary as much from today’s practices as those do from practices of the 19th century. Given this constant revolutionizing of architectural practice, how can architects – and students of architecture – prepare themselves for inevitable shifts in the culture of architectural production? In celebration of Professor George B. Johnston's new book, Assembling the Architect: The History and Theory of Professional Practice, the aims of this symposium are to consider the profession from distinct critical perspectives and to speculate about emergent frameworks of 21st century architectural practice.
