T083.1 Doing theory by other means: how does architectural production challenge STS and ANT

Convenors: Prof Ignacio Farias (TU München); Dr Nerea Calvillo (University of Warwick)

Discussant: Michael Guggenheim (Goldsmiths)

This panel aims to explore the ways in which certain forms of material production can be testing grounds for doing theory. We are particularly interested in how architectural production, as a sociomaterial assemblage and as a design practice, might challenge conceptual repertoires of STS and ANT.
