Seminar: “Architectural and Urban futures of the South Caucasus”

 Thirsday, September 23rd, 2021 at 15:00 BST


This month it is the Caucasus Through Time Network’s greatest pleasure to host its first Architecture and Urbanism Seminar, showcasing the fascinating work of  PhD researchers and Professors: Ia Kupatadze, Andreh Marouti, Stefan Applis and Mariam Urdia.

Our speakers explore topics related to architectural and urban practices governed by modernity, local traditions, political ideology and globalisation of the South Caucasus.

The South Caucasus has seen drastic change within the last 150 years transitioning from predominantly agrarian practices to modern urban agglomerations. Most recently, the Soviet era’s social and political ideologies imposed new forms of experimentation in architectural and urban typologies, effectively restructuring the social dynamics, and the identities of the region. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan forge their own independent interpretations of architectural and urban developments and in so doing redefining their own identities both globally and locally.This seminar will aim to peer into those futures, offering clues to potential modes of architectural and urban production.
