register now for (Un)Loved Modern conference

Registrations are now open for the (Un)Loved Modern conference to be held at the Sydney Masonic Centre, in Sydney 7-10 July 2009.

Keynote speakers have been announced, and include:

Dr Philip Goad, leading Australian architectural academic and author, will introduce the problem of conserving the architecture of the post-war era using a series of case studies of important buildings slated for demolition or demolished which are appreciated by the professions but eschewed by the public and politicians.

Dr Theo Prudon, a Dutch-born American academic, author and practicing architect, will expand on the international perspective of preserving much loved and appreciated Modern icons in the US with case studies such as the TWA Terminal in New York and Modernist houses of the US north-east which enjoy no legislative protection.

Dr John Schofield, academic and author from the United Kingdom, will use Paul Klee’s (1920) work, Angelus Novus as the starting point for an alternative view of landscape – a reverse perspective on the value and significance of archaeology, landscape and memory, as they apply to the (un)loved modern.

Details of accepted papers and presenters will be made available in the coming weeks.

Register now and take advantage of the earlybird registration rate.
