RIBA Research Symposium 2010: Does beauty matter?
 
   
Event Date 23/09/2010
 
Location London 
 
Country United Kingdom 
 
Description The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) will be holding its fifth annual research symposium on 23 September 2010, focusing upon one of the basic principles of architecture: beauty.

Architecture is often judged on its success in creating beauty, yet beauty is a slippery, uncomfortable and divisive subject. It is both a universal good and an enduring source of controversy, but what does it really mean?

The symposium will tackle the significance and function of beauty today. Delegates will debate with architects, developers, community activists and politicians, informed by brand new research. High profile contributors will bring their varied perspectives to bear on the future of beauty, and the implications of beauty in our society.
