Building with Light: the Legacy of Robert Elwall

An International Symposium on Architectural Photography

London

November 13 2014 - November 14 2014

The Royal Institute of British Architects announces an international symposium on architectural photography in conjunction with the first major retrospective of the British architectural photographer Edwin Smith (1912-1971), whose prolific work helped redefine the notion of post WW II Britishness.

The symposium will honour the legacy of Robert Elwall (1953-2012), an acclaimed British historian of architectural photography and curator, since 1976, of the RIBA's Photographs Collection that now bears his name.  With some million and a half architectural images, the Robert Elwall Photographs Collection is one of the most extensive resources for the study of the influence of photography on architecture and the creative process.

The symposium will be held 13 -14 November 2014 in London.


Interested participants are invited to submit a 300-word abstract, brief biography and a presentation title by no later than 31 July, 2014. Proposals will be received for a 30-minute slot or a 10 minute - brief communication- slot; the proposed length should be specified in the submission.
