ABOUT THE COLLOQUIUM
In June 2021 we celebrate the centenary of Alan Colquhoun (1921–2012), British architect, prominent architecture critic and theoretician. The goal of this online colloquium is to consider the continuing significance of Colquhoun’s writings, and the ways in which they continue to provoke and inform contemporary research. To this end, several generations of scholars gather to discuss the relevance of this body of works to the current tasks of the architectural historian. This conference has been jointly initiated and organized by Irina Davidovici (ETH Zurich) and Mary McLeod (GSAPP Columbia), together with the Scientific Committee comprising Tom Avermaete (ETH Zurich), Adrian Forty (Emeritus Bartlett UCL), Kathleen James-Chakraborty (University College Dublin), and Patricia Morton (University of California, Riverside).
