Tuesday Lectures about architecture theory and history

Public lecture series - Updated programme for spring 2017

The crucial issues arising in architecture today are based on fundamental questions that have been explored in the past.

The Tuesday Lectures give an introduction to the history and theory of Western architecture from ancient Greece to our present time in a survey like manner.

Within the individual lectures the focus shifts in between the presentation of concepts, phenomena, geographical regions and exemplary buildings and architects.

Specific emphasis is laid on the embedding of Nordic architecture history into a global context.

Each semester, the chronologically organized survey lectures are supplemented by two History in Practice lectures, in which architects, curators, historians, and other experts present works that exemplify the relevance of architecture history for contemporary practice.

When:

  • 1st-year lectures start at 14.00
  • 2nd-year lectures start at 10.30 (please note the exceptions on 21 February and 25 April)

Where: Aarhus School of Architecture, Main Auditorium, Nørreport 22, 8000 Aarhus C
Duration: 60 – 90 min
First lecture: 7 February 2017
Last lecture: 16 May 2017

The lectures are open to everyone. Registration not needed.
