Conference: International Congress of Architecture
11-13 May 2017, Konya, Turkey
“Now, it is time to come together for the ICONARCH III. This congress will address the theme of ‘MEMORY OF PLACE’ which is a crucial topic in today’s globalizing world. It is memories that make our lives and their spatial dimensions meaningful. Memory itself has a long evolution and has many aspects to consider. In this point, the buildings and cities serve as powerful symbols and repositories of memories. It can be legible via physical transformations of buildings and urban spaces by the time, community thinking, collective memories, politics of space, architectural & urban values, semantic, pictorial, symbolic context of buildings and cities. For establishing a sense of place or creating meaningful experiences, memories are the key elements.
In this framework, the aim of this congress is to serve as a meeting point for academicians & researchers from the fields of architecture, urban & regional planning and urban design from all over the world to discuss the memory of place in all aspects.
[It] will host many distinguished speakers from USA, UK, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Ireland, Albania, Netherlands, Poland and Turkey for the upcoming ICONARCH III Congress.”
