Since 2010, the Network has organized a major international conference every second year. The biennial conferences have proved extremely popular and have played a leading role in consolidating and promoting architectural history research in Europe and overseas.
The EAHN warmly invites proposals to host EAHN 2022. Read the full call here.
Sixth International Meeting
University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom
EAHN2020 takes place in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, UK. The venue is the University of Edinburgh, and the conference takes full advantage of the university, and the city’s numerous architectural sites. The call for sessions and roundtable proposals is now open, please find details here.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, Edinburgh has a well-preserved Medieval Old Town, a New Town built in the early 19th century on Enlightenment principles, and some of the UK’s best examples of post-war modernism. Edinburgh is also the seat of the remarkable Scottish Parliament designed by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT, which opened in 2004. Edinburgh is a city in which questions of architectural history are unusually live: What to build, what not to build, and what to preserve are questions at the centre of both local, and national political debate. EAHN2020 will be based in the central George Square campus, and will make use of the extraordinary Playfair Library, amongst other notable buildings. Join us for an extensive programme of architectural tours, of the city and the region. EAHN2020 promises to be an outstanding conference. It will be accompanied by an exhibition at the Talbot Rice Gallery, with four specially commissioned works of art on an architectural theme.
