whether because of zeitgeist or pedagogy
whether through imitation or tradition
whether great minds think alike or it is all just coincidence
        —architecture follows repeated movements


Tropes is a series of talks that are a part of our SnSPEAK initiative.  

Led by Andrew Emmet, Tropes investigates and identifies recurrent architectural themes.

Drawing from the concept of 'typology' and informed by a taxonomic approach; each talk presents sites and structures with shared traits, and examines those relationships & origins.
