CITY CRITICAL–CONVERSATION 1: Architectural Ecumenicism: Qualities and Quantities


SPEAKER: Fr. Gilbert Sunghera

Architecture is a universal experience. As scholars and professionals, we see the world with analytical eyes. The ascendancy of quantification within academia reflects a concern for rigor and accuracy that is conducive of knowledge production. The rest of us, on the other hand, experience the world. Qualitative research begins to engage that expansive perceptual domain of the subaltern. Yet, the qualitative and the quantitative are not mutually exclusive. This conversation explores how notions such as knowledge, cultural heritage, justice, pastoralism, and the sacred may be grounded in physical reality and inhabitable space.
