SAHGB Annual Symposium 2020

In light of the ongoing pandemic, the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain Annual Symposium (originally scheduled for May) will take the form of a series of 4 virtual symposia and seminars between July and October.

Run in partnership between the SAHGB, AA Archives and RIBA Collections, it will explore the connections between architecture and archives. The relationship between the two provides a primary interface between architectural history and practice, but has been little explored by either discipline. In four sessions we will ask who is represented (and who is not) in architectural archives, what the role of these repositories is for practice and pedagogy, who they serve, and what their future looks like in the age of BIM and Post-Occupancy Evaluation.

In the final session of the symposium series on ARCH/TECTURES ARCH/VES they will pull together the findings of our exploration of the multivalent relationships between architecture and archives, with a series of papers that delve deeply into, and cut across, the themes previously explored in the three sessions held through the summer.

Join for a packed and diverse range of papers and international speakers, drawn from leading archives and collections as well as higher education contexts.
