2ND WORKSHOP ON ARCHITECTURE AND SOCIAL ARCHITECTURE


BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, MAY 26-27, 2010

BACKGROUND

 

This is the second conference on “Architecture and Social Architecture” which seeks to explore a notion of relationships between organizations and their affiliated architecture. In recent years, organizational scholars have given attention to ways of conceiving space in organizations. However, little attention has been given to the influence of architecture on organizations and social behaviour in the context of architectural spaces. Additionally, other disciplines such as, architecture, science and technology studies, and urban design and planning have examined the intersection between physical architecture and the organizations that structure it that may provide new lenses for organizational scholars and vice versa.

CALL FOR PAPERS

This “Call for Abstracts” seeks contributions that will examine the relationship between architecture and the organizational context which offer new perspectives on the intersection between organizations and their physical architecture.

We are particularly interested in cross-fertilization of disciplines that illuminate new and novel methodological, theoretical and analytical approaches. The intention, in the spirit of the call for papers, is to “upset” conventional notions of structure and to pose alternative perspectives, methods and approaches.
