Anna Bronovitskaya. External Factors That Determined the Development of the Architecture of the 20th Century

Lecture Cycle: 20th Century Architecture
7 April 2016
19:30–21:00

DESCRIPTION

The lecture will be devoted to the international architectural community, the platforms for exchange of knowledge between professionals, and the political aspects of this dialogue. 

 The influence of particular circumstances, which differ from country to country, as well as general processes taking place regardless of barriers between national states and political blocks, can be traced in the development of the architecture of the 20th century. The final lecture of the cycle will be devoted to platforms that allow the establishment of professional contacts in the field of architecture: international exhibitions and conferences, and organizations such as the International Congress of Modern Architecture (CIAM); the UN Committee on Housing, Building and Planning; and the International Union of Architects.
