Schwerpunkte is a doctoral event organized by doctoral students from several institute at the Department of Architecture, ETH Zürich: the Institute for History and Theory of Architecture (gta), the Institute of Landscape and Urban Studies (LUS) and the Institute of Design and Architecture (IEA).
The 9th edition of Schwerpunkte aims to explore how the expression of authorship, structured through the methodological approaches of different academic disciplines, shapes and informs the production of knowledge. It is an attempt to challenge and to reconceptualize the established notions of authorship. Through a series of short presentations and workshops, this two-day doctoral workshop aims at opening an interdisciplinary dialogue around the different notions of authorship in relation to epistemologies, situatedness and collaboration.
