This presentation will try to provide a global image of the history of the region of Salmast from the early ages to date, particularly emphasizing the importance of the region, its development and its architectural heritage. It has a specific architectural heritage that is unique in Armenian architecture, and was a cultural region with theaters, schools and active commercial ties from all over the world. Yet it is relatively unknown.
Dr. Marco G. Brambilla is a practicing architect and an architectural historian specializing in the history of Islamic and Armenian architecture. He has taught and lectured extensively in major schools of architecture worldwide. Since 2016, in cooperation with UCLA and Salmast Heritage Association, he has started a major research program about the cultural heritage of the Salmast Region. This will also be the topic of an academic course at UCLA in the spring of 2018.
The event is free to the public.
