Architectural Culture of the Early Modern Eastern Adriatic

Project description

Where politics, economy and religion meet architecture

An international research group will investigate the impact of shifts within political, religious, cognitive and economic spheres in the borderland area of the Eastern Adriatic coast between the 15th and 18th centuries. The focus will be on architecture. Specifically, the EU-funded AdriArchCult project will explore the impact of related changes in terms of both consumption and production. The political and economic consolidation of Venetian and Dubrovnik Republics, as well as the Habsburg Empire in the area, war and commerce with the Ottomans will also be considered. Other factors include the spread of revival of antiquity and Catholic Revival and how it fuelled the need for architectural creation with certain functional and symbolic characteristics. On the production side, the project will focus on the systems of provision of materials and organisation of construction sites.
