Abstracts are requested for the KSA international conference to be held in June 2014 at the University of Kent, Canterbury on the subject of Architecture and Water.
The conference will explore the relationship between architecture and rivers at a number of scales, from the geographical, topographical, through the urban, infrastructural, down to that of the individual building or space. It seeks to examine the interface between terrain and water through the techniques and cultures of landscape, urban, architectural and material history and design, and through cross-cultural studies in art, literature, and social and cultural history.
The conference is deliberately wide-ranging, and seeks contributions from scholars and practitioners with specific interests in the architecture of the river, in its widest sense. We welcome contributions dealing with rivers and architecture from contemporary designers.
Dates: 21 Aug – 30 Oct, 2013
