The Director of the Netherlands Interuniversity Institute for Art History (NIKI) in Florence, Michael W. Kwakkelstein, has the pleasure to invite you to the conference co-organized by Eleonora Pistis (Columbia University / NIKI-scholar-in-residence), entitled "Fragments, Architecture, and Antiquarian Knowledge".
The way in which architects have studied the fragments, ruins and buildings of the past has been a consistent focus of architectural history from the earliest times. The conference will address how different types of information on past architecture were created, collected, translated, and disseminated via various media between the Sixteenth and Eighteenth Centuries.
