Turpin, E. (2012). 'The geologic turn: architecture's new alliance'. Design Research Symposium on the Anthropocene, University of Michigan, United States, 10 Jan, 10-11 Feb 2012, Michigan, United States: University of Michigan.


Recent research and practice in the fields of architecture, art, and philosophy suggest the increasing influence of geology with the design disciplines, visual arts, and theoretical humanities. The symposium A Geologic Turn: Architecture's New Alliance, curated by Etienne Turpin, Ph.D., as part of the Sanders Research Fellowship at the Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning, University of Michigan, bring together researchers, scholars, and practitioners whose work is at the center of this fecund transdisciplinary trajectory. The objectives of the symposium are to encourage new productive connections among current scholarship and practice, and to expose this new transdisciplanary research to Taubman College for discussion and debate.
