With this conference, we aim to present contemporary positions in architectural discourse and practice that have offered complex and already influential descriptions of contextual relations. It is our hope that we can gain a more refined understanding of the diverse ‘contexts’ that shape architectural projects in relation to the demands of place as well as of discourse. We want to stress the importance of narratives and related design techniques that help to establish critical dialogues between, building, place, and discipline.

“Context as Device” has applied to be part of the continued education programme of Architektenkammer NRW.

The conference is organized by Codeks, Wuppertal, and Bergische Universität, Wuppertal.
