Speculative Realism and Architecture in Croatia
This upcoming conference looks good.
I saw some extraordinary architecture here in Taiwan. Some of it was from the Chiang Kai Shek period: obvious, brutal fascism, classical columns and Chinese bureaucracy in hyperbolic concrete. Some of it was low buildings simulating architecture of the Tang Dynasty. The most interesting architecture for me was at private Tunghai University but it seemed as if the public university, Chung-Hsing, had the most modern facilities.
