    The Architecture of Southeast Asian Cities

    How do Architectural and Urban Expressions of Modernity relate to Heritage ?

    The conference is organised by the Contemporary Asian Architecture and Cities: Heritage and Projects research group, based in Paris. The conference will take place June 12-14 2013 at the National Superior Architecture School of Paris-Belleville (ENSAPB). The conference will deal with recent physical transformations and developments of Southeast Asian cities. Contemporary debates in urban studies often centre around the idea of a uniform kind of globalizing urbanization which is spreading worldwide. The conference will examine this idea as a hypothesis in light of the history of each city, the persistence of ancient urban morphologies, and heritage policies promoted by various Southeast Asian nations.
