A history of references

The attitudes to history evident in the work of specific architects, historical and contemporary, form our focus here. We want to look back, but with a mind to the present and future, to understand how history has been used today and in history. Referencing, quoting, copying, stealing, rejecting—these are all ways of dealing with what came before us, and we’re interested in how architects take a position in relation to the past in order to produce work that’s relevant for their time.

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.
