TACK Final Conference – Call for Papers

The TACK Final Conference will take place at ETH Zürich, 19–21 June 2023. For this event we invite submissions of both papers and objects.

Tacit knowledge is a key characteristic of architecture culture. It plays a central role in the conception, design, construction and appropriation of buildings and cities. It characterizes architectural education, distinguishes the cultures of design offices and typifies the collaborations between different actors, including craftsmen, engineers and architects.

Despite the central role of tacit knowledge, our understanding of it remains limited. Research into tacit architectural knowledge has only recently gained momentum and its specificities still need further exploration. Questions as: What are the roles of tacit knowledge in architecture culture? How does it complement other forms of knowledge? And How does it construct cooperative communities across disciplines? still await more nuanced answers.

Against this background, the ITN ‘Communities of Tacit Knowledge: Architecture and Its Ways of Knowing’ convenes a three-day International Conference at ETH Zürich (CH) that aims to explore the key role of tacit knowledge in architecture culture. We invite, submissions of both papers and objects.
