Full-time Academic Position in Building Cultures and Techniques

Save as a favourite

Job description

This full-time academic position is for teaching and doing research in the field of "building cultures and techniques”. Through this designation, we intend to emphasize the relation between (i) technical concerns and skills related to building materials and their implementation and (ii) architectural design considerations (detailing, spatiality, materiality), in light of (iii) current societal issues, in particular the environmental impact of construction and the need to adopt more ecological solutions. Research in the field of “building cultures and techniques” thus questions the relationship between architecture and construction, not only from the field of technique, but from the field of architecture – its culture, its history and/or its specific tools. The challenges facing architecture imply the need for a perspective that is both informed by precise technical skills, but which can also be critical and transversal.
