L'Architettura che non c’è: Imagining and Reconstructing the Unbuilt in Early Modern Italy

Posted By Alexandra Dodson, Monday, May 15, 2017

The streets of Italian cities are littered with architectural specters: the buildings that were demolished by fire, war, and developing infrastructure, and the buildings that never were, those that were conceived but never born due to the lack of power, wealth, or labor. For this panel, we invite papers that resurrect and imagine the unbuilt environments of these cities. We seek proposals that reconstruct demolished or drastically renovated buildings, as well as papers that propose hypothetical constructions of buildings that were designed but never built. We encourage projects that utilize digital technology to explicate and illustrate the historical record and appearance of spaces.

Please send your proposal to Alexandra Dodson ( and Jasmine Cloud ( by May 31. Proposals should include your title (max. 15 words, abstract (max. 150 words), and brief CV (max. 300 words).
