The University of Maryland's School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation collaborated with local universities and the American Institute of Architects to host the joint 2010 Architectural Research Conference Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC) and the European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) on June 23-26 in Washington, DC.
The conference, THE PLACE OF RESEARCH/THE RESEARCH OF PLACE, served as a forum for the dissemination and discussion of architectural research issues, concerns, findings, approaches, philosophies, and potentials. Researchers, educators, practitioners, and scholars in architecture, landscape architecture, and planning from five continents came together in this international research conference to consider significant and rigorous investigations engaging participants in dialogue about the place of research and the research of place in the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and related fields. Associate Professor and Architecture Program Director Madlen Simon served as a member of the conference organizing committee.
Local university collaborators were Howard University and The Catholic University of America. For more informaiton about the conference, check out their website at: http://info.aia.org/arcc/.
