Can There Be a Global Architectural History Today?
Presentations by Kenneth Frampton, Esra Akcan, and Mark Jarzombek
We’re interested in how architects use history, but of course this prompts the question: which history are we talking about? What does it mean to write a global history of architecture—to consider other geographies, other perspectives, and other methods—today? What is the relationship between such a history and urgent contemporary concerns? Kenneth Frampton, Esra Akcan, and Mark Jarzombek offer perspectives and possibilities developed through their publishing and teaching.
