The objective of this Conference is to review the challenges and new opportunities of contemporary architecture. These are a result of advances in design and new building technologies, as well as the development of new materials.
Many of the changes are motivated by a drive towards eco-architecture, trying to harmonise architectural products with nature. Another important issue is the adaptation of the architectural design to the natural environment, learning from nature and traditional construction techniques.
“Circa vestimenta”: The Theatines and Architecture (Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries)
International Conference on the Architectural History of the Order of Clerics Regular Theatines
Introduction: Having suffered much pain and endured much hardship during the COVID-19 crisis, now at the end of 2021, we humankind are slowly beginning the process toward regaining what we are forced to abandon. However, as many insist, we won't come back to the same world we used to live in, thus new values and life styles are needed. The contemporary artist Shusaku Arakawa and the poet Madeline Gins, from the 1990s onward, sought the creation of a new "environment" in which the senses of our living bodies are transformed.
We are pleased to announce the architectural history workshop co-organized by METU and BIAA titled “Ottoman Cultural Mobilities: 19th Century Modes of Travel, Collecting and Display”. The event will be held in hybrid format (via zoom) between 08.30-16.30 (London UTC+0) | 11.30-19.30 (Ankara UTC+3) on Saturday 4 December 2021. Registration is required.

The meeting will deal with the design of many types of buildings in Islamic countries, including not only the better known public buildings like mosques, mausolea, citadels and forts, but also houses and gardens, engineering works such as bridges and dams, irrigation systems and many others which have also had a profound impact on society.
