Theory's History conference logo (including the text 'Challenges in the historiography of architectural knowledge')

The Theory's History conference is due to take place in Brussels from 8 - 10 February 2017.

Against the dominant reduction of architecture’s globalisation to 'Westernisation', Łukasz's talk will show how global visions of socialism (such as the 'World Socialist System') contributed to world-wide mobilities of architecture during the Cold War and shaped urbanisation conditions in West Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere.
