ISSUES? Concerning the Project of Peter Eisenman
The conference focused on Peter Eisenman's long and outstanding oeuvre. Around 50 years of his theoretical and educational work and almost 25 years of his full-time architectural practice has been seen here as vital to the understanding of both the past and the presence of contemporary architecture. From the questions related to Renaissance heritage to the problems associated with disciplinary autonomy and the digital, the conference had aimed to provide a space for a critical debate among architects and theorists.

Built upon our previous experiences with the Architecture of Deconstruction / The Specter of Jacques Derrida, this conference provided a new and challenging form of interaction. It disconnected from the standard model for the scientific gatherings -- session presentations followed by short discussion between participants. Conference was organized in the several sessions, i.e. thematic conversations with Peter Eisenman, regarding his work. Participants were encouraged to provide rich and diverse readings on a number of subjects: to share their insights with Eisenman and with each other.
