Milad Showkatbakhsh alongside with Elif Erdine, Mohammed Makki and Lukas Pauer organized Ph.D.? By Design symposium which was held at the Architectural Association in January 2018. The symposium aimed to address the lack of consensus within the Architectural Association in regard to what a Ph.D. by Design means. and opened up a conversation between doctoral supervisors and students in regards to the convoluted understanding of its non-written component.
