Walking Assembly by Matter Design
Organized by Professor Nasser Rabbat and Postdoctoral Fellow Deen Sharp, Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture, this symposium seeks to address the following questions: How does violence and conflict not only destroy but constitute, design, and organize built environments and infrastructures? How do we understand the urbanization of warfare in relation to urban theory and reconstruction practices? Finally, participants will be asked to consider the recent warfare in the Middle East, with a special focus on Aleppo, in relation to the built environment and the extent to which reconstruction processes can be weaponized.

The Experiments in Pedagogy are tests and provocations. Selected from an open call, the Experiments allow students and faculty to take on topics and modes of inquiry that do not fit into the current curriculum. They are an invitation to students and faculty to investigate new models, formats, and topics of learning, design, and research.
