9th AHRA Research Student Conference 19-20 May 2012 Aberdeen

New Urban Conditions are transforming the way we perceive urban issues and recognise new research strands. Shifting socio-economic and political conditions and the urban production and consumption patterns stipulate new-fangled ideologies in the production of Built Environment (architecture; landscape; public realm; planning schemes and so on) and hence the methods and ideologies that engross in producing these built environments warrant a renewed thinking process. Urban managers (architects and allied professionals) largely require renaissance in thinking processes for preparing themselves to countenance the improbability of the new and emerging urban conditions.

9th AHRA Conference is expected to give delegates (architects, planners, urban designers, construction sector professionals, and all allied professionals), especially the research students, a platform to share and understand the emerging fundamentals of research methods; urban issues and findings; and overall a conduit for student delegates to establish collaborations and stir polemical debates in order to allow them to re-position themselves to look at the cities and architecture differently.
