This free public event will be held at the ASAU from September 22 to 24, 2023.

Four keynotes, and thirty-three international speakers will come together from 12 countries to question how to re-examine the value of “common” precedents while exploring “(un)common” ones.

The event will combine keynotes, paper presentations, interdisciplinary workshops, a performance, an exhibition by architecture and music students, and a book publication. It will tackle some critical questions, which are at the core of practice: How do architects build a frame of reference? Which are the under-acknowledged and (un)common precedents that inspire architectural design in terms of diversity, culture and socio-political contexts? Is there potential in seeking architectural precedents in adjacent disciplines such as literature, music, the culinary, visual, and performing arts, and beyond?
