, Kent State University, co-chairs of the SAH 2020 Virtual Conference session "Opposite/Apposite: Exchanges between Australasia and Ibero-America," are pleased to announce that papers from the session have been developed and published in a special issue of Fabrications: The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Australia and New Zealand
"Thanks to the fruitful discussion that followed the conference session and the cross-pollination of ideas and information between the authors, the articles have been expanded and enriched, forming a robust collection of interconnected narratives," De la Vega de León and Tippey say in their introduction to the issue.
The issue contains four papers original from the SAHANZ session:
"Travelling Abroad to Understand Australia: Glenn Murcutt’s Look at the Architecture of José Antonio Coderch" by Emma López-Bahut
