Syllabi are theory's infrastructure. They set a program for study, give structure to vast networks of ideas, and define an interpretative stance on the world. This one–day event will address who our theory syllabi represent, what theoretical objects or concerns they should address, and why we should continue to teach architectural theory today? The program will include the launch and presentation of the e–flux Architecture project Theory's Curriculum as well as responses to the project by twelve panelists who will discuss the who, what and why of architectural theory today in a series of panel sessions.
