CfP: Thinking 3D: Architecture & Audience. Oxford, 27-28 September 2019

Call for Papers: Thinking 3D: Architecture & Audience. Oxford, 27-28 September 2019

During the Renaissance, representing three-dimensional form in two-dimensional media was a recognized skill and a virtuoso display of talent. As illustrations of three-dimensional subjects became more prevalent, it also affected the development of the disciplines and the professions.
A conference on forms of architectural communication in the early modern period will be held in conjunction with the project “Thinking 3-D,” organized by Laura Moretti (St Andrews) and Daryl Green (Magdalene College, Oxford). “Thinking 3D” was especially significant for architectural practice, where communicating ideas and designs before and after building was of primary importance. Communicating architectural form was central to established and new audiences with an interest in the practical and theoretical issues of building.
The conference organizers welcome proposals for papers and workshops that explore the development of the techniques used to communicate architectural form to wide-ranging audiences, including patrons, other practitioners, and the general public.
The conference will be held 27–28 September 2019 at Worcester College, Oxford; travel and conference expenses for speakers will be supported through the generosity of the Scott Opler Fellowship in Renaissance and Baroque Architecture.

Please submit proposals (300 words) and a curriculum vitae to Dr. Katie Jakobiec, katie.jakobiec@worc.ox.ac.uk by 14 December 2018.
