Unseen therefore Untold: Notes from the Architectural Press Archive

9 November 2016, 14:30 - 16:30

Seminar room SG2, Alison Richard Building. NB Different date*

Dr Marco Iuliano  (University of Liverpool)
 

The talk will analyse a discrete number of architectural works of the Architectural Press Archive, which include The Architectural Review papers that are kept in the Royal Institute of British Architects Collections. In the Architectural Press Archives there are not only vintage photographs and the discarded images, but also fundamental notes that can tell a different story to that which we might read via the published life of the images. This talk explores the emerging concept of 'education to vision', referring to both architectural learning and professional communities, so as to create awareness of the potential (and of the limitations) to space created in our imagination by photographs.

PhD in History and Theory of Architecture, Marco Iuliano is Associate Professor at the Liverpool School of Architecture, where he is also Research Director of the Centre for Architecture and the Visual Arts. He has published extensively on cartography, architectural photography, modern and contemporary architecture, recently on the work of James Stirling (Milan: Moleskine 2015). He is organizing with the Royal Institute of British Architects The Colin Rowe Lecture Series on the Architectural Image.
