Temporalism Conference

Temporalism posits time and motion as central to the most compelling architectural thought and practice today. From the adoption of new media, including computer animation design software, to the increased complexity of organizational planning and infrastructural networks, temporal systems increasingly determine the character of our built environment. This symposium brings together a diverse group of architectural historians and theorists to present and discuss discipline-specific temporal concerns relevant to wider historic, cultural, and technological contexts. Formatted as an intensive half-day event, Temporalism will define a rich and lively zone of debate, with implications for future inquiry into the role of temporality in architecture practice and culture.
