Prompted by President Trump’s threat to bomb heritage sites in Iran, architectural historians at The Courtauld offer a ‘long view’ on the destruction of architecture and heritage in a series of lightning talks. Exploring ideas of iconoclasm, ‘warchitecture’, memory, violence and renewal, papers will consider architectural destruction from the sixteenth century to the present.

Part of the Architecture Cluster’s Series of events.
