Hanbury Endowed Lecture in Historic Preservation
Communication/Representation/Sharing of Cultural Heritage
Campbell Hall 153
Professor Andrea Giordano teaches at the University of Padova, where he is the coordinator of the Degree Course in Building Engineering and Architecture and heads two labs — LDR (Lab of Drawing and Representation) and LIM (Lab of Information Modeling). His interests are centered on the themes of representation understood as a hermeneutic process of construction and design, with particular attention to the geometric-configurative aspects of architectural spaces. His recent published scholarship examines the use of current computerized media for research in the field of detection, representation and communication of Architectural Heritage.
This lecture is co-sponsored by the School of Architecture’s Hanbury endowment and IATH – The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at UVA.
