Architecture Research: Theory, History and Practice

The seminars are a new research collaboration between the Manchester School of Architecture, Liubliana University and Lusófona University (Porto and Lisbon). The online sessions comprising talks about ongoing research followed by questions and discussion are open access. The seminars aim to encourage academic exchange between researchers and postgraduate students working in cognate areas. The intention of the project is to build an international network of shared interest across the architectural sector, to think critically and philosophically about architecture, design and research to foster new forms of research enquiry.

“Bassae and the Fled Gods” | 27 de Janeiro, 14h30

Andrew Ballantyne will reflect

on how we have a tendency to see Greek temples through the lens of the Picturesque.

He was appointed Professor of Architecture at Newcastle University in 2000 and has supervised PhDs and assessed architecture submissions to the Research Excellence Framework. His research works include Tudoresque: In Pursuit of the Ideal Home (with Andrew Law, 2011) and Architecture, Landscape and Liberty: Richard Payne Knight and the Picturesque (1997). He is best known for Architecture: A Very Short Introduction (2002). He would like you to know about his new book, Classical Architecture (2023).
