Dr Joris is a Partner of the international architecture practice Architecture Project with which he produces work in renovation and restoration practice. Recent international awards and invitations to numerous exhibitions and publications allowed the practice to disseminate a critical stance with regards to contemporary renovating practice. Ephraim Joris is also co-Director of program at the faculty of Architecture at KU Leuven University. As part of his post doctoral research and in collaboration with practice he examines the idea of architectural phenomenology that recasts history as the experiential content of speculative architecture. The research reveals a drawing discourse in which the intellectual act cannot be separated from aesthetic experience, illustrating the manner in which architecture may be produced through the perception of collective memory.
