Electives are an integral part of addressing key themes and current issues at the Architecture of Territory. Currently, we are running three elective courses: Sessions on Territory (elective), Architecture of Territory (core course), and Projects of Territory (focus work). For more information, please have a look at the drawers below.
Sessions on Territory are public debates on the political economy of architecture and territory within and beyond the neoliberal order.
This lecture series sets up an agenda for widening the disciplinary field of architecture and urbanism from their focus on the city, or the urban in the narrow sense, to wider territorial scales, which correspond to the increasing scales of contemporary urbanisation. It discusses the concepts of territory and urbanisation, and their implications for the work of architects and urbanists.
The focus work allows students to develop an independent research project in consultation with the chair. For more information, please contact Nazlı Tümerdem.
