RECEPTIONS AND HISTORIGRAPHIES
Post-war architecture, assosiated with the political project of the welfare states, is now restored and re- assessed in the current ideological context of de-regulated market economy. The workshop call for examinations of the historizations than form the basis for this re-assessment. The aim is to study early receptions of welfare state architecture, but also challenge current perspectives.
