The Chair of the History and Theory of Urban Design invites you to the launch of the ‘Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture’ book series. With this series, the commissioning editors, Tom Avermaete and Janina Gosseye, aim to develop a more comprehensive historiography of the modern movement by bringing to light ‘the shadow canon’ – those actors who in their own contexts have had an important impact on the disciplines of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture, but who have (thus far) dwelled in the shadow of their more canonical peers. Prof. Hilde Heynen, the author of the first book in this series, on Sibyl Moholy-Nagy, will present her work and will then join Dr. Malterre-Barthes, an active member of the D-ARCH Diversity and Parity Commission, as well as Prof. Avermaete and Dr. Gosseye for a panel discussion.
