Interstices 13
Technics, Memory and the Architecture of History

Edited by Stephen Loo and Andrew Douglas

The collection of writings in this issue explores memory in relation to architectural history. History is not an inert past, and memory, as access to that past, is not purely an internal condition. Internal ‘mental images’ of memory are inseparable from the external ‘image-objects’ of history that are constructed in architecture, film, photography, art and the media. The divide between the inside and the outside of memory is constantly under negotiation, in which this issue take part. Interstices 13 derives from the first Interstices Under Construction Symposium held outside New Zealand, at The University of Tasmania’s School of Architecture & Design in November 2011.
