Conference Dates: 18th-19th September 2019
The years around 1800 saw the nature of architectural patronage change as new or non-traditional groups began to commission buildings, as new building types emerged to meet new needs and as new methods of commissioning and constructing buildings were practised. All this coincided with the emergence of the architectural profession and an architectural press. This conference aims to explore these issues in a global context, seeking to identify commonalities and differences across international boundaries.

The conference will be held in the Great Hall of Lambeth Palace, where Lambeth Palace Library will display items from their holdings relevant to the themes of the conference.
