Ut Architectura Philosophia? – Questioning the Relationship of Architecture and Philosophy, by Karsten Harries

ISPA 2016 Keynote lecture, 22 July 2016, 6:30 pm.

The topic of this conference “The Human in Architecture and Philosophy” raises the question: just what is the relationship between philosophy and architecture? What do they have to contribute to each other? That both are concerned with the ways human beings relate or should relate to each other and to the world that environs them seems obvious enough. And both would seem to engage in work of construction, work that presupposes some sort of space, the space of everyday life in the case of architecture, a spiritual or logical space in the case of philosophy. But what work do such metaphors really do? Are they not at bottom dispensable? Hence the title of this lecture.
