Collective Domain is leading a two-day workshop and online exhibition as a part of the 2020 Tbilisi Architecture Biennial. Entitled “Build it and They Will Come,” the event brings together professional architects and urban scholars to share their varied approaches to site analysis. The impetus for this event emerged from the realization that, despite having so much in common, professional architects and urban scholars rarely collaborate or learn directly from one another. Instead, it is as if designers build the city and then academics come to study what has been done. Recognizing this disconnect, as well as the great potential that exists for better cross-exchange, the workshop establishes new design-research alliances. It bridges the practitioner-researcher divide and find new avenues to learn from one another.
This workshop is made possible in partnership with the GeClose2EU project, implemented by EPRC with the support of the Swedish Government, in cooperation with the Enterprise Georgia Agency.
