Research in Swiss Architecture #3- Standards, Politics and Funding
While our last workshop, which took place in november 2020, discussed positions focusing on "Design as Research", the aim of this workshop, hosted by the Accademia di architettura
in Mendrisio, will be to receive a better understanding from the various bodies, such as foundations, industry and politics and their perspective on architectural research. Among others questions of the distribution of funding will be discussed, but also the criterias of how architectural research is judged and evaluated.

Research in Architecture #2
The aim of the second conference on architectural research of the Architecture Council is to clarify individual positions and terminologies concerning architectural design, as an essential competence of architectural research. Strategies for financing architectural research will also be discussed.
The findings of the conference will serve as a basis for the formulation of a draft of the position paper on architectural research. This will provide a description of architectural research from the perspective of schools of architecture and the evaluation of this research in the context of the Swiss research landscape. The document serves as a basis for communicating the essence of architectural research to the outside world. In particular, political initiatives to promote architecture-specific research are to be undertaken in the future.
