CONNECTIONS: Exploring heritage, architecture, cities, art, media


CANTERBURY, UK. SUMMER 2020. University of Kent conference.


Conference: "CONNECTIONS: Exploring heritage, architecture, cities, art, media"

Dates: 29-30 June 2020

Abstracts: Round 1: Feb 10th / Round 2: Apr 10th


This event explores links between architecture, cities, history, heritage, art, film, media, cultural studies.

Keynote: Professor, Dr. Richard Koeck. Chair, Architecture and the Visual Arts, University of Liverpool; Director, CAVA

Present: in-person, skype, pre-recorded film (for delegates who cannot travel)

Publishers: Routledge / Intellect Books


Web address:


Sponsored by: University of Kent / AMPS


HIGHLIGHT NOTICE 1: Pedagogy Publication

Educators who discuss issues of teaching and learning will be considered for the Routledge book series "Focus on Design Pedagogy".

HIGHLIGHT NOTICE 2: Media Publication

This event is part of the conference and book series 'Mediated Cities'. Previous events in London, Los Angeles, Bristol, Istanbul. Four books in Intellect Book series. Book five will come from this event.

HIGHLIGHT NOTICE 3: Connected Events

The conference and its publications both form part of a series including:

- American University in Dubai. "Rapid Cities – Responsive Architectures" A conference examining design, planning and construction in the modern world. 22-24 November, 2020

- City University of London. "The City and Complexity – Life, Design and Commerce in the Built Environment". 17-19th June, 2020


For all disciplines connected with life in cities and their histories, the design, construction, conservation and representation of urban architecture and culture has become hydrid: historic, contemporary, permanent, transient, physical and digital. Examples abound for every discipline involved, whether it be urban history, architecture, planning, art, design, media or the communication industries.

As the Western world comes to deeper understandings of its heritage in the 21st Century, technology is ever more present in our reading of the past. Data mapping is standard in conservation and social history. Archaeologists use digital tools in geophysics, laser scanning, and compositional analysis. Landscape and architectural visualizations populate museums across the world. In architecture, computational design uses algorithms to replicate biology. Coding produces self-generated architectural form. Information modeling presents planners with interactive design in real time. The city is seen as 'smart'.

In film and animation, digital models create fictitious places on scales unimagined. Installation artists make space interactive through digitising motion, sound and heat. Projection mapping allows artists to reinterpret the past in-situ. Photographers use digital cameras to document city stories. Marketing, technology and communication mediates the city experience 24/7. In every field, educators are responding.

As the tools we use today merge and blur across disciplines, this conferences asks educators and professionals to consider the following. How can we best manage, direct and utilize the unique potentialities of this interdisciplinary and technological moment? Are we rethinking objects of art and design from the past and future? Are we reconsidering modes of communication, styles of teaching and ways of living? Are we seeing new links between designed objects, visualized spaces and cultural meanings? Are we understanding creative, documentary and media practices in new ways? Are we developing our own knowledge through the technologies, tools or thinking of other disciplines?

Based on this interdisciplinary approach, the conference welcomes educators and professionals in:

Architecture, Urban design, History, Archaeology, Heritage, Art, Design, Technology, Communications, Media, Film, Cultural studies
