Architectures of Hiding Symposium

by Robbie

Architectures of Hiding considers apparatuses, modes, temporalities, motives, and materialities in the crafting of architecture—whether for the deployment of coercive power, exclusion, erasure, or as techniques of imagination, resistance, safety, or agency.

Forty contributors from 12 countries will bring diverse perspectives to a timely inquiry into the issue of the opacity of truth to explore the making of architecture as a social, political, and physical construct that conceals as much as it reveals.

Participants will explore acts of concealment in Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Lebanon, Nigeria, Norway, Palestine, Spain, and the United States.

The online symposium features keynote lectures by:

-Dr. Donald Kunze, Emeritus Professor, Penn State;
-Dr. Shannon Mattern, Professor of Anthropology at the New School for Social Research;
-Leslie Van Duzer, Professor of Architecture, University of British Columbia.
