Architectural Heritage

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


The colloquium explores how architectural heritage and places of memory are produced, registered, and experienced. This is done by entangling the perspectives of architecture, embodied and affective cognition, phenomenological philosophy, affective geography, and heritage and memory studies. Key-topics in this emerging area of research such as these are addressed:

Bodily, spatial, and affective experience in places of heritage;
Nature and mechanisms of affective engagement with the built environment;
Affordances, affective atmospheres, and collective memory;
Socio-political factors influencing cultural affordances and understanding of heritage;
How these can be (un)intentionally created and manipulated through architectural design.
The colloquium brings together esteemed scholars from the disciplines of architecture, philosophy of cognitive science, and affective geography. The aim is to discuss this emerging new field and to build new networks for future collaboration.
