The International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture & Urbanism (INTBAU) has been running a online talk series focused on Ethiopia for the last few months. The talks focus on Ethiopia’s built heritage and the traditional building practices and is open to all and free to attend. Their next talk is tomorrow, Thursday 6 May:
Thursday 6 May, 18:30 BST - Embodied Knowledge and Craft: New Rock-hewn Churches of Northern Ethiopia by Tarn Philipp
Tarn will share findings from his fieldwork research (2015-2020) to offer an insight into the craft and phenomenon of new rock-hewn churches and explore whether the apparent resurgence represents a revival or a continued ancient tradition.
The talks are all being recorded so you can watch the previous episodes on YouTube:
