ASK.the.Conference 2016

ASK.the.Conference 2016 “Education for Research, Research for Creativity” was held on February 26-27 by the Faculty of Architecture together with WUT’s Center of Innovation Management and Technology Transfer. This first edition explored the role of research in the creative practice and the education of architecture and urban designers. It emphasized the changes in culture (especially the digital revolution) and needs of the society of knowledge related to environmental awareness with the usage of IT tools. The themes were supported by Research by Design and combined academia and practice for the creative transformation of our living space.

The first edition of the conference gathered 46 panelists from 16 international research institutions and universities. The conference provided an opportunity to showcase good practice and innovative approaches to research and teaching in the field of architecture and urban design.

During the conference we presented the ASK team’s work on the development of our new PhD program, soon to be launched at the Faulty of Architecture.

ASK.the.Conferece 2016 was organized as part of the “Architecture for the Society of Knowledge – ASK – English speaking doctoral course at the Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology” project, supported by a grant from Norway through Norway Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.
