The 6th Annual Symposium of Architectural Research 2014 is organized on October 23rd to 25th in Oulu, Finland, together with the Nordic Association of Architectural Research Conference (NAAR). The Symposium is the annual gathering for research in architecture, urban design and planning and has been organized by the Finnish schools of architecture (Aalto University, Tampere University of Technology, University of Oulu) together with the Finnish Association of Architects SAFA since 2009.

The theme of the symposium will be Designing and Planning the Built Environment for Human Well-being. The aim is to discuss how to bridge knowledge gaps between the planning, design, production, use and transformation of the Northern built environment in the context of human well-being. Also, the theoretical and philosophical openings are very welcome to the symposium.

The Symposium offers international keynote lectures, high quality research papers and a relaxed arena for discussion for researchers and practitioners of the Nordic countries and broader international audience. The symposium languages are English, Finnish and Swedish. We welcome researchers and practitioners in architecture, urban design and planning, geography, cultural anthropology, the social sciences, ecology, and other fields related to architectural studies to present their work.
