INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

PROGRAMME

Photography enabled designers, architects and engineers, historians and scholars of architecture to have access to a great and widespread cultural legacy, essential in meeting the needs of research, critical interpretation and communication. Currently architectural photography is widely recognized for its value as part of cultural heritage; it is characterized by specific coding methods; it is preserved, studied and exhibited in public and private archives, collections and museums.

Photography is necessary to any kind of architectural publication for promotional or educational purposes, such as manuals, monographs, historical and critical essays. This interaction between 'words' and 'things', between the narrative and the physical reality beyond architectural drawing, has encouraged new historical considerations for the construction processes, for the changes occurring to buildings over time, for the singularity and contextualization of architectures, both in their formal and material features.

The international conference aims to explore such issues within the twentieth century and with a special focus on the rich cultural context of the Lombardia region. The contributions will be organized according to four thematic panels plus a final panel: 1. An international perspective; 2. Italian architects and photography; 3. Archives, collections and institutions; 4. Construction yards: building processes and successive transformations 5. Conference Conclusion.

International scholars are expected to approach significant case studies and to bring new interpretations of the twentieth century architectural history.
