The conference dates back to 2009, when the first international conference, "Architecture, Media, and Art," was organized at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. 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. Therefore, The title was "Theory for the Sake of the Theory" emphatically. In 2012, the discussion centered on Living and space; the main topic 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 been a fruitful discussion theme. In 2014, 'Architecture and Text' was discussed; in 2015, 'Architecture and Criticism' was the main theme. In 2016, the ARCHTHEO Conference was merged with the ARCHHIST Conference series and, since then, has continued to focus on the theory and history of architecture from various perspectives.
