Seventh Annual Conference November 2019 - Jaap Bakema Study Centre

This year’s conference of the Jaap Bakema Study Centre aims to critically explore the interplay between architecture and digital culture since the 1970s. How has the emergent data society materialized in architecture? What new typologies have been developed? And what role did architecture play in the emerging discussion about artificial intelligence? 

Due to the pandemic, this year’s edition of our annual Jaap Bakema Study Centre conference has to be very different from our previous events. Usually, we announce a call for papers in the spring, but spring this year saw the first lockdown in the Netherlands and many other countries. Now, with the second wave of the virus still gaining momentum, we are in a (partial) lockdown situation once again. 

With this in mind, we have decided to organise a series of online workshops and keynotes with invited speakers. Together with Georg Vrachliotis, this fall appointed as full professor of the theory of architecture and digital culture at TU Delft, we have developed a programme around current research questions that probe the interrelations between the digital and architecture. This follows up on the earlier events of the Jaap Bakema Study Centre’s Total Space programme.
