Architecture and Spectacle

Modern architecture emphasizes function over form, incorporating modern materials and a rebellion against traditional styles. This panel seeks to present several diverse studies of modern architecture in the public eye, i.e. for public consumption. In particular, papers exploring political spectacles of architecture (i.e., the aesthetics of the architectural revival in Mussolini’s Italy; World Fair exhibitions of architectural design; government building projects designed to reinvent cultural identity) are welcome, as well as papers emphasizing elements of modern architecture across cultures and traditional schools. Please send 500-word abstracts to Heather Lusty at heather.lusty@unlv.edu by April 1, 2011.
