The first of the theory of architecture conference series ARCHTHEO has been held since 2011 at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University focusing on the possibility of the theory without the backing of the practice or built environment. The title was, therefore, "Theory for the Sake of the Theory" in an emphatic fashion. In 2012, the discussion centered on the Living and space, the main has been chosen as "House&Home´ in particular. ARCHTHEO ´13 focused on the two leading roles in architecture, the architect and the so-called ´user´ and  ´Creativity, Autonomy and Function´ has proved to be fruitful discussion theme. In 2014, ´Architecture and Text´ has been discussed. Last year, ´Architecture and Criticism´ was the main theme. The conferences, which has the focus on history rather than theory has started even earlier, in 2010. Architecture and Media, Architecture and Art, Interactions in the History, Architecture and Politics have the main themes of the events.”
