CR|PT|C Agora is a biennial event hosted by the doctoral students of the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University. Each symposium brings the focus on different themes while addressing questions about the history and theory of architecture in relation to practice. The symposia invite contributions from a multiplicity of fields to consider and discuss the nature of architecture today and the impact it makes on the world. Starting from the Doctoral Program’s intention to fuse research with critical practice in architecture, each event invites contributions by written and/or creative work, expanding the dialogue between both mediums and allowing for further speculation on the relationship between the two.
Parts of the works presented in CR|PT|C Agora are disseminated to a wider audience through the CR|PT|C Journal, a biennial peer-reviewed, PhD student-run academic publication.
