Call for Papers: How to Narrate the History of Architecture? Haifa, 7-8 May 2018

Centenary of Birth of Architectural Historian Bruno  Zevi  (1918-2000)
Faculty of Architecture & Town Planning, Technion Campus

The Faculty of Architecture & Town Planning and Avie and Sarah Arenson Built Heritage Research Center, the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, is proud to announce an international conference to mark the centenary of the birth of the architect, architectural historian, critic, educator, Italian statesman and Jewish activist-Bruno Zevi (1918-2000).
The conference is dedicated to Bruno Zevi’s version of architectural history, as well as to constructions of the narrative of architectural history in general. The need to rethink the established account in history books and in the classroom, is felt again in recent years- in view of ongoing global processes and cultural change. We therefore invite papers on the general theme: “How to narrate the history of architecture?” which addresses the dilemmas, past and present, of relating the comprehensive story of architecture.
Please send an abstract of proposed paper, no longer than 300 words, together with a short CV (no longer than 500 words), before 15 December 2017. to the conference coordinator, Ms. Lena Arbov, e-mail: brunozevi100@gmail.com
