The Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum (ACSF) announces its 2019 Symposium (ACSF 11) to take place in Taliesin West (Scottsdale, Arizona), an internationally recognized icon and destination for most architects, landscape architects, and designers.  Illuminated by the visionary and mystical figure of Frank Lloyd Wright, Taliesin West offers participants the perfect context where to meditate, sense, discuss, and even plan how to best harness the continuous interactions between nature, design, and spirituality. It also permits attendees to consider the little-addressed yet important legacy of FLW’s spiritual sensibility, belief, and practices vis-à-vis his work (60 years after his passing) in light of the huge challenges facing the world today. 

The symposium dates are May 16-19, 2019. As in previous symposia, ACSF 11 will be structured around a main topic (in this case "Continuity in/of Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality") but also open to ideas, works, and proposals relevant to the Forum's areas of interest.  We invite all individuals interested in participating in this event to submit proposals of 500 to 1,000 words for either the SYMPOSIUM TOPIC or an OPEN SESSION. Proposals may be submitted in one of three categories: paper, practice/research project, and workshop. The deadline is January 21st, 2019.

Facing Post-Socialist Urban Heritage

4-5 October 2019, Budapest, Hungary

The third international doctoral / postdoctoral conference organised by the Department of Urban Planning and Design, Faculty of Architecture, Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME).

www.urb.bme.hu

Throughout Europe, current urban challenges are posed by large-scale ensembles of modernity as a result of post-WWII development on both sides of the Iron Curtain. The urb/doconf 2019 is the third in a series of a doctoral / postdoctoral conference, to be organised on a biannual basis, which will provide a comparative overview of current doctoral research into the physical - built and natural - environment within post-socialist cities in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and post-soviet Asia.

Those invited include doctoral researchers – doctoral students, candidates or post-doctoral researchers (maximum five years after obtaining the doctorate degree) - specializing in architecture, urban design, urban planning or landscape architecture. The BME Department of Urban Planning and Design wishes to promote cooperation among doctoral institutions, building up a network for future generations of scholars through their specific fields of research related to post-socialist urban heritage.

Main Conference Topics

The doctoral conference series is dedicated to post-WWII (after 1945) urban heritage of post-socialist cities focusing on the main research topics of the department. In order to compare different perspectives, we welcome papers examining the physical environment under the following sessions:

1. mass housing neighbourhood

2. urban space for reuse

3. waterside urban fabric and landscape transformation

Considering the three main conference topics/sessions, we are interested in different research methodologies: theoretical frameworks, comparative studies, morphological case studies, historic approach, research by design methodology, etc.  

We seek contributions that (i) test the post-war heritage positions in the changing ideological context after the fall of the Iron Curtain, (ii) investigate the mutual impact of the spatial turn and the critique of functionalism on urbanity, or (iii) examine the role of post-socialist legacy in the formation of new identities.

In addition to theoretical questions, we wish to find pragmatic approaches when responding to the new challenges of sustainability and determining what kind of protection tool-kit is capable of addressing large-scale ensembles problems. Our aim is to discover special similarities and dissimilarities within the physical environment of post-socialist cities, discuss a wide range of options (from preservation to sustainable renewal processes) and create a network of doctoral researchers.

Abstract Submission

Please send an extended abstract (400-500 words) and a brief academic biography (70-100 words).

Please use the template on the website: https://goo.gl/pBZQ34

Abstract deadline – 04 March 2019  / notification of acceptance – 31 March 2019

In an informal setting and in dialogue with experienced and imaginative guests, The Colin Rowe Lectures aim to discuss the role of the image in architecture, particularly the crucial role of architectural photography. The lectures are considered as an open forum of discussion for architects, photographers, students and he simply curious. All are welcome.

The title of our next lecture is "Hidden in Plain Sight: Photography, Architecture, and the United States 'military-industrial complex'" and will be delivered by Claire Zimmerman, associate professor in History of Art and the Architecture Program at the University of Michigan, and Director of Doctoral Studies in Architecture at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

A World of Architectural History

Bartlett School of Architecture, Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, University College London, UK

November 02 2018 - November 04 2018

Event web site

The conference’s aim is to critique and celebrate the latest advances within architectural history globally over the last few decades, by focusing upon the word ‘global’ in two senses: 

  • Geographically, referring to the increasing inclusion of all parts of the world in more complex and multiple discourses of architectural history;
  • Intellectually, the ongoing expansion of architectural history into other academic subjects, plus the reception of ideas/themes from those subjects.

The conference will take place around the same time as the publication of Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture (Bloomsbury Press), although as a separate event. Recognition will be given to a more inclusive approach to architectural history that seeks to incorporate the histories of all countries/regions, and to the significant contributions now being made through interdisciplinary links with other subjects. As such, the conference will represent the forefront of the field internationally and also discuss where architectural history ought to head in future. Conference presenters will include those from the wide range of subject areas within the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment and leading figures in architectural history across the world. Papers will consist of a balance of those by invited speakers and those selected via an open call.
