ORDNANCE: WAR, ARCHITECTURE AND SPACE
16th to 18th September 2010.
An interdisciplinary conference organized by the Cork Centre for
Architectural Education (CCAE) and School of the Human Environment,
(University College Cork).
This international interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the often
hidden relationship between militarism and the design and construction of
architecture and space in the modern period. Historically, military
imperatives have been embedded in the way society is organized and, from the
Renaissance onwards, the needs of offence and defense played an increasingly
influential role not only in the physical shaping of the city and landscape,
but also on the means by which they were represented. Recent events, notably
the ‘War on Terror’ have reinforced these impulses within the city,
extending and deepening systems and architectures of surveillance.
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN.
