The society has managed to bring together 500+ contributors since 2009. Having held its first symposium in 2010, successful conferences at Newcastle University, UK 2012, TU Delft, Netherlands 2014, and University of Bamberg, Germany 2016, ISPA has become the preeminent established organization in the field. With numerous upcoming events planned across Europe and North America, the society continues to actively engage philosophers and architects in the cultivation of architecture philosophy as a field of enquiry.

Philosophers from all traditions – whether continental or analytic or otherwise – are welcome. Architects – whether practitioners, historians, or theorists – are also warmly welcome. The objective of bringing philosophers and architects together is to develop – in a truly interdisciplinary manner – the field of architecture philosophy.
