TRANSITORY, TRANSPORTABLE AND TRANSFORMABLE: TEMPORARY CONDITIONS IN ARCHITECTURE
Architecture is generally regarded as being, for the most part, permanent, static and immutable. However some significant buildings are intended to be temporary, whereas others are designed to be moved from one location to another or even to be flexible enough to alter their form and appearance as the result of changing requirements. This symposium intends to explore the temporary condition in architecture and to question whether architecture needs to be either permanent, static or immutable.
The Annual Symposium will be held between 09.30 and 18.00 on Saturday 18th May 2013 at Alan Baxter Associates, 75 Cowcross Street,
A diverse yet coherent range of papers have been invited with speakers coming from Israel, Italy, Thailand, Turkey and the United States, as well as from the United Kingdom. The subjects to be discussed will range from Republican Rome to eighteenth-century Europe, and from pre-war encampments to post-war playgrounds. A full conference programme may be downloaded below.
Tickets for the day, which include a buffet lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments and a wine reception, cost £48 each, with student tickets at £15. Students should provide proof of student status with their application.
