Emma Filippides

I am an independent architectural researcher living and working in Ghent, Belgium.

With a background in conceptual design and architectural history, I have worked on the delivery of publications, events and exhibitions within urban research organisations and have partnered with architectural and curatorial offices on a variety of practice-based projects.



Working Papers

A publication and architectural history symposium.

I was designer and editor of Working Papers, an edited collection of research by the 2018 architectural history MA cohort at The Bartlett.

The structure of the book, instead of being divided into thematic chapters, attempts to chart the collisions and divergences of subject matter and approaches. For doing so, we created a network of transversing ideas across papers, highlighted in each author’s text and gathered in an index, aimed at producing interesting and sometimes unexpected connections throughout the body of work. In this sense, Working Papers was envisioned as only one form of assemblage, subject to manifold possible future arrangements.

Additionally, I was co-organiser and chair of the Working Papers symposium and publication launch, which featured presentations of graduate papers alongside keynote presentations by scholars Felicity D. Scott (Columbia University), Helen Hills (University of York), and Joy Sleeman (Slade, UCL).

This project was co-produced, edited and designed with Stephannie Fell and Max Wisotsky.
