Melbourne Symposium: Haunting Memory & Place
21st-22nd September 2017, Melbourne School of Design, Melbourne, Australia
DATE: 21/9/2017
"We are haunted, we architects and historians; seeking knowledge in ephemeral traces and altered landscapes. We become intimately bound by the ghosts that we chase through the archives, longing for understanding through fragments of the practices and projects that are left behind. We seek resonances in the space, buildings and objects of the past.

What of the spectres of history and geography that have haunted architecture’s production, and the dark shadows of influence and authority drawn between Europe and its colonies? And what of the architects we study; what reverberations of bankruptcy and inferior workmanship, self-doubts, critiques and unfulfilled visions are they plagued by?"
