A SmallSymposium on “Architecture and Work”
as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture
6-9 July 2020, Athens, Greece
sponsored by the Athens Journal of Architecture
The Architecture Unit of ATINER is organizing a Small Symposium on “Architecture and Work” as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture, 6-9 July 2020, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Architecture.
The objective of this symposium is to invite researchers and academics from the areas of Architecture, Sociology, Archaeology, Geography, History, Literature and Economics, to reflect on the relationship that exists between architecture and human activity in working spaces: the relationships between architectural and urban space, the nature of the work that takes place there, and the role that the worker assumes in this context. The proposals may analyse the characteristics that architecture destined to work had to adopt in its uniqueness, how it has been maintained and transformed in the case of a functional loss, how it has been recovered. Proposals may also focus on working spaces as industrial heritage.
You may participate as presenter of one paper, or observer.
Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.
Please submit an abstract (email only) to: firstname.lastname@example.org, using the abstract submission form by the 2 December 2019, to: Dr. Raffaella Maddaluno, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Architecture University of Lisbon, Portugal. Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 37 Units and 6 Centers. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
