SPACE International Conference 2021 on Architectural Culture and Society

The 4th International Conference on “Architectural Culture and Society” addresses all the aspects of cultural studies aiming to discuss cultural issues especially in terms of architecture from different perspectives and research areas. The meeting always attracts a substantial number of participants from all over the world. Thus, the Conference establishes an ideal platform to discuss the recent advances and research results in the intersection of cultural studies and architecture.  The scientific quality of the Conference provided by SPACE International Advisory Board and the variety of the topics are the most important reasons behind this success of the series.
