The Site of Discourse
Thinking architecture through publication

Lisbon, 28–30 September 2015

 

Currently, there’s a widespread consensus that architectural magazines have played a fundamental role in consecrating identities and giving rise to new orders of thought on the practice and the representation of architecture. Editing and projecting have thus become so closely linked that it seems reasonable to claim that they share a common ground beyond the contingencies of constructive practice, resting upon a web of both conceptual and professional relationships.

Some authors have been taking periodical publications as important research sources; as well as entities able to reconfigure the theoretical, technical, disciplinary and discursive settings in which they are grounded and the identity of their protagonists.

The international congress The site of discourse will places the architectural magazine in the center of the debate, in order to understand the place that such “printed object” occupies in the definition of the contemporary architectural discourse  — in its conceptual, theoretical, graphic, material dimensions. The aim is to reflect on the culture of architectural periodical press in a geographical and chronologically extended context, crossing perspectives from different disciplinary traditions, taken the following topics as starting points:

 

Existe, actualmente, um generalizado consenso de que as revistas de arquitectura têm ocupado um lugar fundamental na consagração de identidades e na formação de novas ordens de pensamento sobre o exercício e a representação da arquitectura. O acto de editar e o acto de projectar tornaram-se, assim, tão próximos que é razoável admitir que partilham territórios comuns, definidos para lá das contingências da prática construtiva e sustentados por constelações de relações quer conceptuais quer profissionais.

Por esse motivo, estas publicações periódicas têm sido tomadas, por muitos autores, quer como importantes fontes documentais; quer como entidades passíveis de reconfigurar as conjunturas teóricas, técnicas, disciplinares e discursivas em que se enquadram e a identidade dos autores que as delinearam.

O congresso internacional The site of discourse procura colocar a revista de arquitectura no centro do debate e compreender o lugar que este “objecto impresso” ocupa na definição do discurso — conceptual, teórico, gráfico, material — da arquitectura contemporânea. O objectivo é refletir sobre a cultura editorial do periódico de arquitectura num contexto geográfica e cronologicamente alargado, cruzando perspectivas provenientes de diferentes tradições disciplinares que tomem como ponto de partida os tópicos a seguir definidos:
