Lecturer's Abstract

In this lecture, Peg Rawes will consider the value of philosophical ideas of geometry, ecology and subjectivity for architectural and artistic practice. She will discuss the relevance of seventeenth-century ideas of ethics and social housing, the twentieth-century maps of Agnes Denes and Buckminster Fuller, and issues of contemporary housing welfare in the UK today.


Peg Rawes is Professor in Architecture and Philosophy, Programme Director of Architectural History MA, and a supervisor for Architectural Design PhD and Architectural History & Theory PhD. Trained in art history and philosophy, her research and teaching focus on material, political, technological and ecological histories and theories of contemporary architecture and art.

Peg regularly gives talks in the UK and overseas, and have recently been invited to give lectures at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, University of Regensburg, University of Minnesota, Iowa State University, The British School in Rome, KTH Stockholm, London School of Economics, KADK Copenhagen and TU Delft.
