Architecture & Violence

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.
