This two-day symposium will provide a unique platform that brings together nation-wide scholars, industry professionals and passionate citizens with an interest in concrete Brutalist architecture and preservation of the architectural icons. The symposium’s goal is to create a dynamic, cross-disciplinary conversation among all participants on how we may conserve and provide stewardship of our buildings for the future. Participants can attend professional workshops and scholarly lectures, tour the campuses, and engage with local artists and community activists in public events.
Day 1 of the two-day collaborative symposium will be held in the Claire T. Carney University Library’s Stoico/FIRSTFED Grand Reading Room. The program is available at https://sites.google.com/umass.edu/umassbrut/umassbrut_symposium/program.
