1. Aggregate Fall Conference and Website Launch
    The Daniels Faculty of Architecture at the University of Toronto
    09.20.13 – 09.21.13

    Aggregate is meeting with collaborators at the University of Toronto in September 2013 to launch our new web-based platform for the production, peer review, and multimedia publication of innovative scholarship. This online platform will advance the collaborative peer interaction on which the group was founded and will open this process to broader participation by scholars and students, creating a public forum for research in architectural history and theory. A symposium on Friday, September 20 will be followed by workshops on Saturday, September 21. Made possible by a Connection Grant from SSHRC, the event is free and open to the public.
