Name: The Camden Conference in Bangor: Architecture, Local or Global-shifting goals in a shrinking world
Date: February 10, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Event Description:
The impacts of globalism and nationalism are not new to cultural debates. Starting in the 19th century, as nations established modern identities and professions emerged to serve modern societies, architects began to create built environments that negotiated inherited classical ideals with newly-valued local traditions and growing urban settings. Through the 20th century to the present, large architectural firms have maintained international practices, drawing ideas from and working within the far reaches of the globe. This presentation will examine the historic and contemporary tensions in architecture between serving local or national identities and global ambitions.
