"Architectural research and architectural criticism". Sounds like a smart and heady heading. Its an event arranged by The Nordic Association for Architectural Research and the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art, NTNU. This event runs from the 25th throughout 28th this month. Two questions; would anyone send a transcript and why is this not in Oslo, as well? So, if your in Trondheim, then do like Facebook and click attend.

Underneath, Wang Shu tells a little bit about changes in 1980's China and how architecture ought to be taught.
Contextualism describes a collection of views which emphasize the context in which an action, utterance, or expression occurs, and argues that, the action, utterance, or expression can only be understood relative to that context.
