SAHGB’s Annual Architectural History Symposium for PhD Scholars and Early Career Researchers

Thursday, 31st March 2022, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm (GMT), Liverpool, England or Online

The SAHGB is delighted to invite you to SAHGB’s annual architectural history symposium which seeks to raise awareness of traditions of vernacular adaptation and reuse, including cultural responses to ruins, layering of settlements, repurposed architectural fragments, temporary habitations and obsolete building typologies.

Organised into two sessions, the morning session addresses historic traditions and the afternoon examines current theoretical and practical approaches informed by architectural history research. There will be a concluding round table session to draw these themes together where examples from the past can be considered in context with current design solutions.

In addition to the ten researchers presenting their work, we are delighted to welcome Professor Ola Uduku, Head of the Liverpool School of Architecture, who will introduce the symposium and our keynote speaker, Dr. Konstantina Georgiadou, who will deliver her presentation ‘Only Temporary! Housing the Lausanne Treaty refugees in Greece.’
