The international conference 'Context as Device – the Fiction of Place and the Real of Narrative' presents contemporary positions in architectural discourse and practice that have offered complex and already influential descriptions of contextual relations.
It primarily focuses on narratives and related design techniques that help to establish critical dialogues between, building, place, and discipline.
With very subtle visual references to architectural grids as a foundation, the design emhasizes the reciprocal relationship and interaction between "Context" and "Device".
The printed products' material reflects their real context – rendering it just as well a "device" and creating ever changing atmospheres and interactions with the viewer – whereas the digital media act as an unobtrusive frame to make room for the conference's visual content.
