  • Architecture of Independence - African Modernism

    New York | Dates: 09 Mar – 27 May, 2017
    February 16 - May 27, 2017

    Architecture of Independence - African Modernism

    Between 1957 and 1966, 32 countries – almost two thirds of all African nations – gained their independence from colonial powers. In these budding nations, including Ghana, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Kenya, and Zambia that are featured in this exhibition, technology and development became tools of liberation and instruments for expressing national identity. The daring and ambitious designs of new buildings, from state banks to convention centers and stadiums, mirrored the optimism and aspirations of the newly liberated states.

    Presenting over 700 photographs, as well as archival materials, historical photos, newspaper clippings, postcards, videos, plans, and sketches, Architecture of Independence documents the ambivalences of decolonization, its contradictions, and inconsistencies, but also its ambitions, aims, and aspirations.

    Curated by Manuel Herz and organized by the Vitra Design Museum, Architecture of Independence includes contemporary photography by renowned photographer Iwan Baan and award-winning South African humanitarian photo-documentarian Alexia Webster.
  • CFP: Architectural Histories - open access journal of the EAHN

    Dates: 09 Mar – 31 Dec, 2017
    Deadline: Dec 31, 2017

    Architectural Histories, the open access journal of the EAHN, is now 
    accepting submissions for the Open Issue of 2017.

    Architectural Histories is the international, blind peer-reviewed 
    scholarly journal of the EAHN that creates a space where historically 
    grounded research into all aspects of architecture and the built 
    environment can be made public, consulted, and discussed. The journal

    contributions that engage with architecture and the built environment 
    from a historical perspective. We invite original contributions of the 
    highest quality from scholars and critics in all stages of their 
    career. The journal especially welcomes contributions that stimulate 
    reflection and dialogue about the place of history and historical 
    research within the varied and multifaceted ways in which architecture 
    and the built environment are studied and debated today, across 
    disciplines, cultures and regions. The journal publishes on a continual 
    basis, with new articles coming online as soon as they have passed peer 
    review and copy-editing, in one open issue (running from Jan 1 to Dec 
    31) as well as one or more special collections per year.

    Thanks to support from the European Architectural History Network, and

  • CFP: Fabrications (SAHANZ Journal) Themed Issue "Architecture/Heritage/Politics"

    Dates: 02 Mar – 25 Sep, 2017
    Fabrications: Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Australia and New Zealand invites submissions for a forthcoming themed issue (28:2) on ?Architecture/Heritage/Politics.? Papers are due by 25 September 2017.  See below for details.

    Architecture/Heritage/Politics

    The spaces of normative cultures dominate the heritage arena suppressing or marginalising other competing forms of heritage. Architecture is uniquely positioned to resist these hegemonic processes through substantive material presence, the resilience of which is best realised in conservation praxis. But too often heritage conservation assumes an apolitical stance by neglecting to acknowledge its own unsettling agendas. This issue of Fabrications seeks to understand the nature of the relationship between major and minor cultural practices where architecture, heritage and politics intersect. Its particular focus is the Asia-Pacific region, where tensions caused by colonisation, decolonisation, territorial conflicts, the cold war, migration, nation building and economic liberalisation have produced diverse or dissident built expressions.

    What are the implications of the politics of patrimony for architectural history? We are interested in how both normative and marginal cultures reinvent the past; how relationships of geopolitical dominance or dependence are expressed; and how majority and minority cultures operate within sovereign frameworks. Do the politics of these processes have legible architectural outcomes? Do their material expressions cross geopolitical borders? Do they suggest new methodologies for researching and writing architectural history? Could they raise questions about the place of architectural history amid the interdisciplinary practices of conservation?  What are their implications for the architecture of heritage framed internationally, nationally and regionally that has to negotiate diversity, dissent and accumulation? The issue anticipates papers that rethink the multifarious relationships between the discourses of heritage and architecture in ways that are self-reflexive, inclusive, !
    dynamic and mindful of the co-habitation of different cultural positions.


    Guidelines for Authors

    Papers should be submitted online at  www.edmgr.com/rfab<http://www.edmgr.com/rfab>  by the due dates identified above.

  • CFP // Sophia Peer Review Journal

    Dates: 01 Mar – 31 Dec, 2017
    // Call for papers // Deadline: continuously open for submission. To submit your abstract (max. 300-500 words and 2 images up to 2MB), send directly to info@cityscopio.com. Crossing Boarders, Shifting Boundaries Image, Body and Territory In the first number of our scopio Sophia magazine, we published three major essays that challenged our understanding and spread new light on several Walter Benjamin’s concepts on photography and art, at the same time we were continuously defied to think about established categories namely those of photography as document, archive, critical witness, or even as critique in itself. In the upcoming number, we would like to push further and go beyond these notions perceiving how they are critically inscribed in the works of art themselves. We are especially interested in unfolding the processes of thought present in photographic, filmic, or other works engaged with image and image making, that explore the notions of Body and Territory or use them as their own expressive matters. Body and Territory frequently appear intertwined, sometimes even suggesting metaphorical uses: the city as a body (in the multiple acceptations: political, social, cultural, etc.), the body as an experimental territory (on debates around issues of identity and gender, works involving artistic and aesthetic experimentations, works for anthropological documentation and recording), the landscape in the absence of the body, as Cézanne named it, establishing a direct link between the painted landscape (the image) and our sensitive perception. Our magazine is now accepting abstracts within these fundamental themes in order to unveil how an image, a photograph or a series, or a film critically and poetically build their own thought about the body and the territory, and, above all, how they contribute and appear engaged in architectural and/ or urban processes. More info: http://sophiajournal.net/category/call-for-papers/ *Sophia Peer Review Journal* Crossing Boarders, Shifting Boundaries Sophia collection is specifically designed to address theoretical work, and it aims to be the publishing medium for a set of exploratory and critical texts on image in the broad sense, i.e. comprehending the worlds of design, photography, film, video, television and new media. The objective is to challenge different artists and creators to publish in book format original articles, reviews and other texts of interest and value. We are interested in making Sophia a mentis instrumental capable of extending our critical knowledge and questioning the universe of image in innovative ways. The published set of theoretical and critical texts on image can either be taken from sections of scopio magazine, or from our International Conference On the Surface: Photography and Architecture, or submitted by new authors and other R&D national and international centers, through our call for abstract submissions. The title Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries defines the global theme for this present cycle of Sophia and conveys the interest in promoting a critical analysis around this theme, exploring how image is a medium that, on the one hand, can cross borders and shift boundaries between different subjects and disciplines where image and photography are present in a significant way and, on the other hand, in how image and photography can be used as critical instruments to better understand the real and its different realities, always questioning the universe of image in an innovative way. http://sophiajournal.net/ Editorial Organisation Editorial Coordinator Pedro Leão Neto (FAUP) Editors of Sophia 1st Number Susana Ventura Edward Dimendberg — Invited Editor Editors of Sophia 2nd Number Pedro Leão Neto Susana Ventura Iñaki Bergera — Invited Editor Editorial Assistant of Sophia 2nd Number Diana Carvalho Scientific and Editorial Commission (CEAU-FAUP) José Miguel Rodrigues Pedro Leão Neto Rui Ramos Susana Ventura Vítor Silva Reading Committee Álvaro Domingues (FAUP/ CEAU) Ana Francisca de Azevedo (DeGeoUM/Lab2PT) Andrew Higgot (AA Grad Dipl PhD) Carlos Machado (FAUP/ CEAU) Gabriela Vaz Pinheiro (FBAUP) Joana Cunha Leal (FCSH-UNL) Joaquim Moreno (FAUP/ CCRE) Jorge Figueira (FCT-UC) Marta Cruz (FAUP/ CEAU) Marco Iuliano (LSA/CAVA) Miguel Leal (FBAUP) Olívia da Silva (IPP – ESMAE) Pedro Bandeira (EAUM) Paulo Catrica (UNL) Teresa Ferreira (EAUM/ CEAU) Colaborators Diana Carvalho Maria Neto Creative Director Né Santelmo Translation Lisbeth Ferreira

  • Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Reappraisals and Revisions

    Oxford | Dates: 05 – 07 May, 2017
    As the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's birth comes round in 2017, he appears omnipresent in his familiarity but difficult to assess compared to the other founders of Modernism. Combining reappraisal and contextualisation of his work from leading scholars, this weekend also considers the nature and extent of his impact in Britain from the 1920s to the present. This raises general questions about the nature of influence in architecture, the identification of national character in the modern period, and continued capacity of Wright to surprise us with his multiplicity of faces.
  • The Culture of the Regency: Image, Reality and King George IV - Lecture Series

    Oxford | Dates: 10 May – 14 Jun, 2017
    The Regency period (c.1780-c.1830) was, for the visual arts, a time of exuberance, colour, experimentation – and fun. It was the period of Nash and Soane, of Turner and Constable, of Brighton Pavilion and Regent Street. Its vibrancy and originality took its cue at least partly from the personality of the Prince Regent himself (after 1830, King George IV). Prince George’s eclecticism in art, architecture and the decorative arts were in the van of taste: he helped to make the Regency era the first truly eclectic age, anticipating the Victorians’ love of mix-and-match, was responsible for considerable stylistic and technical innovation, and became the greatest ever royal builder and collector, erecting a stunning set of royal homes – which today still constitute the Crown’s most significant architectural assets – and creating much of the present-day Royal Collection. At the same time, however, George IV was seen by many of his subjects at best as a flawed figure of fun, at worst as a predatory and irresponsible spendthrift. Moreover, the style and taste of the Regency was by no means merely a royal creation: for the first time, middle-class families dictated the disposition and decoration of the home. Liberated by technology, householders were able to acquire what had, barely fifty years before, been regarded as unattainable, aristocratic luxuries – from chintz to chimneypieces to champagne.
  • Parting Shots: Minor White's Images of Portland, 1938-1942

    Portland | Dates: 03 Mar – 23 Dec, 2017
    Parting Shots examines nationally renowned 20th-century photographer Minor White, focusing on some of his earliest work when he was in Portland between 1938-1942 to photograph the city, from its economically depressed downtown to its opulent mansions. White’s captivating images document a city on the verge of change during the World War II era and serve as one of the few visual records of some of the city’s most significant architecture prior to its eventual demolition. For the first time, at the Architectural Heritage Center, White's photographs are presented alongside architectural artifacts rescued from many of the commercial and residential buildings that appear in his images and that are drawn from the Bosco-Milligan Foundation/Architectural Heritage Center's permanent collection. White’s work prompts us to think about how we should document and preserve historic buildings today, especially those at risk of demolition, and the power of the photograph in depicting our architectural heritage.
  • Cities, Communities and Homes: Is the Urban Future Livable?

    Derby | Dates: 22 – 23 Jun, 2017
    Cities, Communities and Homes: Is the Urban Future Livable?

    University of Derby, England, UK

    Keynote Speakers:
    Richard Blythe, RTPI. Royal Town Planning Institute Vincent Goodstadt, ECTP-CEU. European Council of Spatial Planners ? Conseil europ?en des urbanistes

    In this conference housing design, community development, city space, urban sociology and human geography will be dealt with individually, as important subjects in their own right. They will also be examined as integrated complex subjects that influence one another in fundamental ways.


    The conference encourages subject specialists to explore the specific issues of their area of expertise. It also seeks to support a more cross sector and interdisciplinary way of thinking by facilitating a better understanding of the approaches of experts and academics in these complex and interconnected set of issues: housing provision, policy and design; community resilience and participation; urban politics and social structures. This is a unique opportunity to broaden our knowledge of how the work of other disciplines impacts on our own.
    Organisers:

    The series is organised by a collection of publishers and universities including: The University of Derby, The University of the West of England, London South Bank University Liverpool and John Moores University, UCL Press and Libri Publishing, La Universidad de Sevilla, The University of Cyprus, Swinburne University and more. It is coordinated by the non-profit research organisation AMPS as part of its engagement with the UN Habitat University Initiative.

    Between 2016-2018 the series is focused on events in the UK. See:
    http://architecturemps.com/uk-events-2016-2018/

    Keynotes:

    Speakers this series include: Steve Cole, Head of Policy, National Housing Federation; Herman Hertzberger, RIBA Gold Medalist; Assemble, Turner Prize Winners; Stephen Hodder, CBE, Former President, RIBA; Richard Blythe, Head of Policy, Royal Town Planning Institute and more?


    Themes:

    Cities: Speakers include urban and landscape designers, human geographers and regional planners. Each will deal with their own work, cases studies, strategy proposals, current and emerging issues in theory and practice.
    Communities: Speakers include community activists, participatory design practices, sociologists studying community and local policy makers.
    Homes: Speakers include housing professionals, architects developing affordable housing models, and regional policy makers on housing provision.

    Publications:

    There are four separate publication outlets:
    There is a conference proceedings publication as part of the event series with its own ISSN. Delegates will also be considered for inclusion in two books series with UCL Press and Libri Publishing, respectively. In addition, the scholarly journal Architecture_MPS ISSN will run a Special Issue on housing.

  • CFP: Culture on the Move in Edwardian Britain (Lancaster, 8-9 Sep 17)

    Lancaster | Dates: 21 Feb – 04 Jun, 2017
    University of Lancaster, September 8 - 09, 2017
    Deadline: Jun 4, 2017

    The Spirit of Speed: Culture on the Move in Edwardian Britain

    ‘Before us stretched the deserted road; we could trace it for miles and 
    miles, a long line of grey in a vastness of green space that faded into 
    blue, rising and falling with the rise and fall of the hills. Then the 
    spirit of speed took possession of us, the fascination and the frenzy 
    of speed for speed’s sake […] We had escaped from the fetters that bind 
    man to earth; we were intoxicated with a new-born sense of splendid 
    freedom; without exertion or effort we lightly skimmed the ground […] 
    We were rushing into infinity.’ (James Hissey, An English Holiday with 
    Car and Camera, 1909)

    The fourth annual conference of the Edwardian Culture Network will be 
    held at the University of Lancaster this coming September, in 
    association with the Edwardian Postcard Project. Taking our lead from 
    James Hissey’s 1909 evocation of travelling in a motor car, or H.G. 
    Wells’s equally-breathless sea-bound finale to Tono-Bungay – we will be 
    exploring the ‘spirit of speed’, as represented, reflected, challenged 
    or wilfully ignored by British culture c.1895-1914. We invite 300-word 
    proposals for papers on any aspect of this theme. Topics might include, 
    but are not limited to:

    - Culture on the move: the significance of postcards, advertisements, 
    newspapers, travelling exhibitions, etc.
    - Reactions to new technologies: motor cars, steam turbines, radio, 
    film, etc.
    - Speed and freedom: travel, independence and access.
    - Rushing into infinity: Speed and the representation of time in art.
    - Placing the brakes on speed: antidotes to the quickening pace of 
    life: stillness, slowness and spirituality.
    - Speed and exchange: The impact of Atlantic crossings on 
    Anglo-American culture.

    We will accept proposals for 15 minute presentations and panels; we are 
    also happy to consider experimental approaches and poster ideas. Please 
    e-mail proposals (not exceeding 500 words) to 
    edwardianculture@hotmail.co.uk. The closing date for applications is 
    June 4th, 2017. Participants from inside and outside academia are 
    equally welcome!
     
  • Frank Gehry’s MasterClass on Design & Architecture

    Dates: 21 Feb – 30 Jun, 2017
    The legendary architect is best known for his trailblazing, modern structures, and pioneering vision for what architecture can and should achieve. His designs - including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Guggenheim in New York, the Dancing House in Prague, and 8 Spruce Street in New York - have reshaped our cities’ skylines, and the imaginations of artists and designers around the world. Gehry has been awarded with several honors for his work including the Pritzker Architecture Prize and most recently the Presidential Medal of Freedom. 

    In his first-ever MasterClass, Frank Gehry will share his unconventional philosophy on design and architecture. Students will be invited into Gehry’s never-before-seen model archive for a peek into his creative process. In the class, Gehry will use case studies, progressive models, and storytelling to illuminate the universal lessons learned during his 50+ year career as an artist and architect.

    “I have tried to give the students insight into my process – how and why I did things.  I hope this gives them the wings to explore and the courage to create their own language,” said Frank Gehry, MasterClass instructor.

    MasterClass provides online classes from world-renowned instructors, making it possible for anyone to learn from the best. Each class offers a unique learning experience which includes video lessons from the instructor, interactive exercises, course materials, peer interaction, and more.

This edition of the TransPositions Summer School focusses on material culture and the senses. How can we investigate sensory experiences of past material cultures or cultures that are not our own? And how can we reconstruct in our studies the experiential richness of ephemera and material practices “lost in transmission” or only preserved in textual sources? The summer school approaches these questions across different disciplines including art history, archaeology, anthropology, conservation, musicology, performance and media studies, cognitive science, and religion- and science studies. We invite doctoral and postdoctoral researchers from the humanities, the social sciences, and related disciplines with a strong interest in material culture and sensory experiences to apply via e-mail to j.briggeman@uu.nl.
