Kent School of Architecture and CREAte would like to invite you to the 2018 CREAte's Biennial conference:
From Building to Continent: How Architecture makes Territories
The full programme is available here.
Standard architectural histories often analyse buildings as isolated objects, sometimes within the immediate context, but typically with minimal acknowledgement of wider spatial ramifications. However, buildings may become spatial generators, not only in the immediate vicinity, but also at larger geographic scales. In the context of this conference, such structures have been grouped and analysed collectively to understand how these artefacts represent territories at varying scales.
For further information about the conference, please visit https://research.kent.ac.uk/frombuildingtocontinent
