International Conference on 18th Architecture & Culture "Books with a view"
03.05.2011
Submission of abstracts (with biographical notes): until May 30, 2011
The year of 2011 celebrates three hundred years since the birth of Eugénio dos Santos (b. 18.03.1711-25.08.1760), the Portuguese architect and city planner who, among other projects, was responsible for the plans to rebuild Lisbon after the earthquake of November 1, 1755. His artistic and technical training, his architectonic production, his aesthetic preferences and some of the books in his private library (comprising 160 titles), reflect a person that embodied the transition between two significant moments in the Portuguese culture. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, Eugénio dos Santos hasn’t hand down the theoretical support of his architectonic oeuvre. A contextual approach is thus essential to attain the underlying principles sustaining his work. Therefore, to celebrate his birth, we welcome contributions on cultural expressions that, directly or indirectly, would add to the eighteenth-century’s artistic practice and theory focusing on the following thematic itinerary:

1 The logic of time;
2 Writings on Architecture and city planning;
3 Private and royal libraries (patronage, space concepts, architectural decoration, furniture, catalogues...);
4 Recommended books and forbidden books;
5 Printed books: arts and techniques (typography, page layout, engravings, bindings, and materials).

Deadlines for Abstracts:
Submission of abstracts (with biographical notes): until May 30, 2011
Notification of acceptance of abstracts: until July 25, 2011
Reply to notification of acceptance, and registration: until August 15, 2011
