The Critic|all Conference is a place and an event. A place because it is an academic meeting point for researchers, teachers and architects interested in architectural culture and criticism, and an event because the forum that takes place during those days generates a fruitful knowledge, where the intellectual and scientific impulse is higher than the sum of the valuable individual contributions.


Our aim is to set a preliminary platform to launch an item, to call a theme, to forge some early reflections which allow the settling and binding of the topics that organize the sessions of each edition of the conference.

Although its environment is linked to the activities of the Architectural Design Department of Madrid School of Architecture ETSAM-UPM, it has a clear international vocation. Therefore, we have started a new phase in which each edition will be organized in collaboration with a partner university. The fourth edition of the conference will be hosted by FAU-USP in São Paulo.
