about

EURAU is a network of schools and researchers in Architecture and Urbanism, which meets biannually in a symposium to share their investigations.

EURAU’s main concern is to establish these meetings as a place of debate and discussion of contemporary discourses in Architecture, City and Town Planning. This is a committed action organized by University and contributes with the Europe 2020 Strategy towards a smart, sustainable and an inclusive society.

The French Ministry of Culture initiated EURAU in 2004. Since then, a series of international editions have taken place and now with the participation of hundreds of researchers from around the world, it is impossible to stop. The series organized by different Schools of Architecture have been around the following themes:

  • 2004 École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Marseille
    “On Doctoral Research”
  • 2005 École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture et Paysage de Lille
    “Large Scale”
  • 2006 Association des Instituts Supérieurs Brussels-Liège-Mons (IESA)
    “Cultural Heritage”
  • 2008 Escuela Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
    “Cultural Landscape”
  • 2010 Facoltà di Architettura dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II
    “Venustas / Architettura / Mercato / Democrazia”
  • 2012 Faculdade de Arquitectura da Universidade do Porto

  • 2014 Faculty of Architecture of the Istanbul Technical University
