Mapping Architectural Criticism

The research project Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural Criticism in the XXth and XXIst Centuries: A Cartography, funded by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche, aims at developing a field of research on architectural criticism and its history, from the last decades of the 19th century to the present day. It is based on an international network of scholars, whose research involves history of architectural criticism on many different levels, including architectural theory, history of preservation, historiography of architecture, and history of architectural periodicals. Nathalie Boulouch (Université Rennes 2 and Archives de la critique d’art), Anne Hultzsch (AHO), Giovanni Leoni (Università di Bologna) Paolo Scrivano (Boston University), Laurent Stalder (ETH Zurich), Suzanne Stephens (Barnard College, Columbia University), Alice Thomine-Berrada (Musée d’Orsay, Paris) are the main members of this network, which is hosted at Rennes 2 University and coordinated by Hélène Jannière. The network holds its first workshop on January 18 2016 at Rennes 2 University, dedicated to the topic “Architectural Criticism: Part of Public Debate or Autonomous Discipline?” This is the first of a series of three international workshops aiming to foster scholarship on history of architectural criticism and to facilitate exchanges between scholars involved in this field of research.
