Expanding Research in the Field of Architecture.
This day-long workshop will explore the various ways of growing
interest and increasing research output in the field of architecture
among practitioners, scholars, and students in South Africa. A focused
discussion among architects, active researchers, and post-graduate
students from a number of South Africa’s institutions of higher
learning will paint a broad canvass featuring different approaches to
architectural research and directions in which the field can move in the
future. This forum serves as a springboard for expanding scholarly
pursuits and deepening knowledge in architecture, a prestigious and
vital field that has been underrepresented in South Africa.
