Juan Calatrava participa en el simposio «The History of Architectural History. Genesis and Development of a Scientific Discipline between National Perspectives and European Models»

El 8 y 9 de noviembre se celebrará el simposio «The History of Architectural History. Genesis and Development of a Scientific Discipline between National Perspectives and European Models», organizado por la Technische Universität Dresden en la Accademia Nazionale di San Luca (Roma), en colaboración con l’École Pratique des Hautes Études (París). El simposio, dirigido por Henrik Karge, Sabine Frommel y Claudio Strinati, reunirá a algunos de los mayores expertos internacionales en historiografía de la arquitectura.

For the first time, the symposium on the History of Architectural History will attempt to understand and describe the increasing importance of architectural historiography as a European phenomenon on an international level. In this sense, the different understandings of this discipline in several European countries will be examined, also with regard to the reciprocal effects of their respective methodologies. Renowned experts from Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Denmark, Poland, Hungary and Greece will contribute diverse national and supranational perspectives.
The symposium will analyse the genesis and development of architectural historiography within the panorama of historical sciences, especially in relation to the history of art. Here, the authors of architectural history must be examined: art historians, architectural theorists and practical architects have each developed specific perspectives. Fundamental is the relationship to the social and political situation of the country concerned. Did architectural history contribute to the development of national identities and stereotypes?
On the other hand, a largely standardised development model of European architectural styles emerged during the 19th century, which was understood in the 20th century as the basis of different conceptions of modernity and of contemporary architecture. In this respect, can the interactions of the different countries, their academic institutions and specific traditions be grasped? Finally, the view should also be expanded to include global perspectives on the history of architecture.

Entre los conferenciantes intervendrá Juan Calatrava con la ponencia «El proceso de construcción de una historiografía arquitectónica en España, 1766-1848», en el marco de la mesa sobre construcción de historias nacionales de la arquitectura.
