Architecture and Authorship Symposium

7-8 February 2008 KTH Stockholm

The symposium Architecture and Authorship, to be held in Stockholm on Feb 7-8th in 2008, is a follow-up event to the book published in June 2007 by Black Dog Publishing. It explores issues of authorship, attribution and intellectual property in architecture, and examines how individual architects and movements, from the fifteenth century onwards, have endeavoured to maintain their status by defending what they see as their own unique territory, the origins and intentions of their work, and their signature style. The event is organised by the editors of the book. The symposium will be structured in accordance with the sections of the book - mapping a 'force field' in which issues of authorship in architecture are played out.


This event is organized by the KTH School of Architecture and the Built Environment, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, through Katja Grillner, Tim Anstey, and Rolf Hughes
