Writing Architecture: A symposium on architectural criticism and the written representation of architecture
Organised by the ATCH (Architecture Theory Criticism History) research group in the School of Architecture at The University of Queensland, in association with the Institute for Modern Art and Heat.
This is the first of two planned events, convened by Dr Naomi Stead of the ATCH research group, on the subject of writing architecture and architectural criticism. Presentations will address some of the following questions:
Conference speakers include Bernard Brown, Karen Burns, Cristina Dreifuss-Serrano, Helene Frichot, Gevork Hartoonian, Paul Hogben, Andrew Leach, Steve Loo, John Macarthur, Andrew Nimmo, Veronique Patteeuw, Deborah van der Plaat, Julian Raxworthy, Charles Rice, Magnus Rönn, Alex Selenitsch, Naomi Stead, Lee Stickells, and Sarah Treadwell.
Due to the very limited capacity of the venue we ask that potential participants submit a short (150 word) written expression of interest in attending. This should include a description of your interest and/or experience in the area, your willingness to actively engage in discussion, and which days you would wish to attend. Expressions of interest should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 7th August. Acceptance will be notified early the next week, followed by the registration process. The registration fee is $50 per day. It will be possible to register for one or both days.
Please direct all enquiries to paarch AT uq.edu.au.
