CfP: The Lessons of Rome, 5th Edition. Lyon, 20 March 2020

Call for Papers: The Lessons of Rome, 5th Edition. Lyon, Museum of Fine Arts, 20 March 2020

The Lessons of Rome aim at providing a space for reflection for anyone who grasps Italy as an architectural, urban and landscape research laboratory. Defining Italy as a laboratory involves analyzing contexts of urban policies but also as design expériences, theories as well as practices, legacies, mutations and prospects. It means building knowledge and culture, but also learning and developing tools to conceive the present and enrich contemporary practices.
The Lessons of Rome provide the opportunity to be kept up to date on current and upcoming researches, to share existing and generate new knowledge and dialogues with Italy. Professionals, students, phd candidates, researchers and people from various academic disciplines, schools and nationalities are welcome.
Please submit your proposal before 2 December 2019 to benjamin.chavardes@lyon.archi.fr. Please include a title, an abstract (about 200 words) and a short biography. The official language of the day is French, but proposals and papers can be submitted in English. The result of the selected proposals will be announced by email on January 2020.
The Lessons of Rome is a study day organized in partnership between the Ecole Nationale Supérieur d’Architecture de Lyon, the LAURE-EVS and the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts.
