The Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative is dedicated to advancing research and education in the history and theory of architecture. Aggregate generates, workshops, presents, and publishes innovative scholarship from multidisciplinary perspectives. Aggregate is particularly interested in work that foregrounds the multiple ways in which one can understand architecture’s relationship to the world.
Since 2006, Aggregate has held annual or semi-annual workshops and symposia.
In 2012, Aggregate’s collected volume Governing by Design: Architecture, Economy, and Politics in the Twentieth Century was published by the University of Pittsburgh Press. In 2015 and 2016 we published the edited volumes Black Lives Matter and The Destruction of Cultural Heritage: From Napoléon to ISIS online. In 2021 and 2022 two new Aggregate books were published: Writing Architectural History: Evidence and Narrative in the Twenty-First Century, by the University of Pittsburgh Press and Architecture in Development: Systems and the Emergence of the Global South , by Routledge.
A board of directors funds and manages Aggregate. But we consider Aggregate to be everyone who has ever engaged in an Aggregate project as an organizer, collaborator, contributor, author, reviewer, or discussant. We incorporated in 2012 and are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in New York State.
