A New Agenda for Gottfried Semper 

Friday, March 17, 2023
Collegium Helveticum
SEMPER OBSERVATORY (ETH / STW)
Schmelzbergstrasse 25
8006 Zurich

 

Three roundtables present new approaches to the architect and theorist Gottfried Semper in recent publications on architecture culture. SEMPER’S LIFE AND TIME addresses how new biographical insights and the time-spanning role of architecture reveal the historicist period to be not an isolated epoch. SEMPER AND MATERIAL CULTURE discusses the mid-nineteenth century’s emphatic interest in material history against the backdrop of the precariousness of a life in exile confronted with a globalized world. EDITING SEMPER is devoted to new research questions in the context of the medium chosen for editing archival material: book and website.

organized by Sonja Hildebrand (USI Mendrisio), Mari Hvattum (AHO Oslo), and Philip Ursprung (ETH Zurich)
