Architecture, Festival and the City: the P&B team at AHRA, Birmingham

Several members of the Printed and the Built team last week attended the 14th Architectural Humanities Research Association Conference at the School of Architecture and Design, Birmingham City University. Mari Hvattum gave the keynote ‘On Festival  and Failure’, while Iver Tangen Stensrud spoke on the 1852 Christiania student meeting in the illustrated press, Mathilde Simonsen Dahl gave a paper on Adolf Schirmer’s 1883 exhibition pavilion at Tullinløkka, Oslo, and Anne Hultzsch discussed processions, crowds and buildings in the early Illustrated London News.
