  • CALL FOR PAPERS. BITÁCORA 29: ARCHITECTURE, CITY AND LIGHT

    Dates: 01 – 15 Sep, 2014
    From XIX century onwards the effervescence produced by technological development made itself clear in Western culture. The creation of new theories, devises, systems and artifacts, all of them illuminated by the light of Science, redefined collective imaginary, with a new perspective of society’s environment and reality. In this context, light –always present in Human Kind’s history–was theorized, manipulated and rethought as one of the main subjects of the formal discourse of western culture. Representations and social forms, along with its architecture and cities, were never the same again. Under the light of such ideas as progress, welfare, hygiene, security –sometimes used correctly, sometimes manipulated for the worse, but always present throughout modernity– architecture, city planning and design have played a decisive part in this development. This and other issues will be discussed in Bitácora’s next edition.
