Personal profile

Research profile

Robert Alexander Gorny is guest teacher and PhD candidate at the Chair of Methods and Analysis, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft. A graduate of the State Academy of Arts, Stuttgart (2009) and the Berlage Center for Advanced Studies, TU Delft (2014), he is founder of relationalthought, a nomadic agency operating at the intersection of theory/practice. His architecture-theoretical research aims at promoting more relational, ecosystemic, and machnic conceptions of (and approaches to) architectural arrangements. Since 2016, he is a member of the editorial board of the peer-reviewed Dutch architecture theory journal Footprint.

In addition to teaching research- and design-methodological courses at the Chair of Methods and Analysis, he is currently conducting his doctoral studies on a project titled: Flat Theory: A Genealogy of Apartments. Parts of this ongoing research were published and presented in topical essays, such as “Toward a Relational Conception of Living Together/Apart” (2018), as well as several other papers with a focus on architecture's technicity as a boundary-drawing practice, including his most recent article “Reclaiming What Architecture Does” (2018). 

As editor for Footprint, he co-edited a special issue in Footprint 21 (Winter 2017) with a thematic focus on “Trans-Bodies / Queering Spaces”.
