Workshops of the Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative in Brooklyn (2011), Princeton (2017), and Boston (2018).

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.

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.
