The conference addresses scholars from different disciplines in order to trace the multiple aspects that accompany the transfer of architecture from antiquity to the present day.
Monuments and Sites de-colonial! Methods and Strategies of Dealing with the Architectural Heritage of the German Colonial Era
Monuments and Sites de-colonial! will be dealing with the architectural relics of the German colonial era and investigating post-colonial strategies of appropriation and critical communication regarding these buildings. In addition to references to pre-colonial legacies, the focus lies primarily on the period of the German colonial era from around 1880 to 1920.

The conference focuses on High-Tech Architecture of the 1970s to the 1990s as heritage, aiming to create an architectural-historical basis for further research on their preservation.
The aim of the symposium is to give an overview of the current state of research on Erik Gunnar Asplund.
The symposium tackles some critical questions, which are at the core of practice: How do architects build a frame of reference? Which are the under-acknowledged and (un)common precedents that inspire architectural design in terms of diversity, culture and socio-political contexts? Is there potential in seeking architectural precedents in adjacent disciplines such as literature, music, the culinary, visual, and performing arts, and beyond?
This international conference will explore the appearances and functions of ephemeral objects, materials, and machineries used at court festivities, as well as their relations to spectacles and performances in general.
This conference is envisaged as a listening exercise. The organizers regard a conversation as both codified practice as well as a specific act of verbal exchange, spoken or written, on a particular subject – here architectures, cities, and landscapes – occurring in a specific site, from street to salon, kitchen to court, construction site to theatre, field to church, or book to newspaper, to name but a few.
