PhD Research

Baban Seth Stone Quarry Worker Settlement, Navi Mumbai by Bo Tang

Taught by Peter Carl

Against the view that architectural or urban order can ‘redeem’ civic life through sheer form, beauty, efficient systems, etc., the PhD students use their topics as vehicles for understanding the depth of involvements, the manner in which architecture and urban topography establish the conditions for praxis. Despite the manifold investment in complex technologies, global supply-chains and bureaucratic systems, it is still true that the city gives a definite direction to nature. From this it is possible to clarify the ethical horizons of praxis, which is inevitably rooted in the common ground of disagreement/conflict.

The students’ research is both practical and philosophical, using situations in London, Dongguan [China], Mumbai, Agra, Delhi, Duncan Village [SA], Luanda, Doha, Dubai, Monpazier [France], Baghdad.
