Building Techniques in Writings on Architecture between Italy and the Low Countries (16th – Early 18th Century), Bruxelles

Activiteit: Participating in or organizing an event at an external academic organisation


This conference focuses on the connection between architectural theory
and construction techniques. The first part deals with the analysis of
technical descriptions, their relationship with building practice, their
rhetorical value, and their international circulation and adaptation. It
comprises case studies from Italy, France, and the Low Countries. The
second part approaches the same problem in a comparative perspective and
takes the form of round-table discussions structured around three
themes: the relationship between technical writings and construction
practices, the literary aspects of technical digressions, and the
translation and adaptation of Italian treatises.
