Test Sites: Experiments in the History of Space gathered leading scholars and critics for a one-day conference to investigate what lies outside the dominant modes of architectural and urban history, exploring alternative practices such as reconstructions, counterfactual histories, new media, critical conservation, and even destruction. Speakers presented specific projects as examples or “test sites” for experimental historical practice.
