In her latest book, The Production Sites of Architecture, published by Routledge, Sophia Psarra examines the intimate link between material sites and meaning. The book explores questions including 'how do spatial configurations produce meaning?', 'what are the modes of knowledge production in architecture?' and 'how do these modes change our understanding of architectural knowledge?'.
Sophia will be in discussion with some of the contributors from the book exploring the five key themes of imagination, world-making, mediations, intersections and re-appropriations.
Light refreshments will be provided.
