Session: The Architectural Exhibition and/as Critique
Society of Architectural Historians 
From the great expositions in the nineteenth century to the present, exhibitions have transformed architectural culture. This session will examine those instances in which the architectural exhibition – focused either on contemporary or historical work – is used to critique design practices and operate as a change agent. How have exhibitions challenged existing historical narratives? How does the discursive format of the exhibition differ from that of the written text? How has the exhibition revolutionized architectural writing, both journalistic and academic? The critical agency of the exhibition might be variously located: in institutional practices, curatorial decisions, strategies of display, or the discursive modalities of the exhibition itself – in forming new kinds of critical structures
or creating new terminologies and points of entry.

Session: Architectural and Spatial Design Studies

In recent years, there has been a plethora of scholarly works that address spatial and architectural operations from various perspectives. Established disciplines that have an innate relation with space (e.g. architectural history or urban geography) have not provided forums that are open enough to include these diverse viewpoints. Thus, despite their commonalities, these approaches lack a space for exchange. This session presents papers that bridge studies of space and architecture with the field of design studies, and that may also be affiliated with a variety of other fields, such as cultural and urban geography, spatial anthropology, and media studies. Papers will address spatial topics of various scales, from the scale of the interior space to that of a geographical region, and spatial practices beyond the design of buildings, such as spatial representation, spatial narratives, spatial policies, and users’ practices.
