The 2022 Rome Teaching Workshop addressed the history of architectural theory in the broad scope of time from the 1960s to the present. Through four lectures by AE Rome Workshop teaching fellows, Michael Osman, Anna Neimark, Stelianos Giamarelos and Roberto Damiani, and through two debates that included additional participants, Alessandro Toti and Gabriele Mastrigli, the teaching workshop addressed a number of themes from biopolitics and power, to medium specificity, conceptual architecture, and criticality, to the relationship between critical regionalism and postcolonialism to architectural theory’s relationship to the history of the Left and to changes in the economy (and particularly to Keynsian welfare state to Hayakian neoliberalism), the professionalization of history, theory and criticism, and the demise of a critical public sphere in architectural culture, as well as transformations in the domain of ideology and in media-technical conditions.
