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.

Spaces.Structures.Changes: a musical exploration of the conference theme, by Laura Konjetzky

ISPA 2016 Keynote presentation, 19 July 2016, 7:00 pm.

In her composition “Spaces. Structures. Changes”, the multiple award-winning composer and pianist Laura Konjetzky abducts the audience on a journey through various musical spaces, from pianistic virtuosity to poetic sounds.

“Spaces. Structures. Changes” is a varied solo performance for piano which temporarily transforms the grand piano into a percussion instrument and in which the pianist sends enchanting piano sounds into the audience in a novel way.

For a live trailer of “Spaces. Structures. Changes”, see here.
