The speakers will be presenting virtually, but spectators are invited to watch the e-symposium in-person at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism with chair Professor Greg Andonian.
The e-Symposium on Art & Architecture, Urbanity & Social Sustainability will be an opportunity to learn more about recent theoretical advances in interdisciplinary studies and future directions of applied research in architectural history/theory and anthropology, and in urban revitalization and social sustainability. It will be of interest to general educators, architects, systems engineers, urban planners, social cyberneticists, mathematical modelers, and computer simulators.
This e-symposium represents the work of colleagues from around the world. We are grateful for the time and effort they devoted to the preparation of their papers and for their great contribution to the advancement of knowledge in the field.
