In the age of social media and information, what are the iconic images of a city and the buildings that populate it? Does the propagation of architectural imagery, the collective image of a place, affect the conceptualization of a building and play a role in urban planning? What are the esoteric and the iconic landmarks of our times? How has the architectural travel journal evolved through the use of social media to record our findings, explorations, and experiences? Has the civic identity of a city, its planning, and its architecture evolved through a changing lens?

about Global Dialogues's (dis)covered Identities
The AIANY Global Dialogues Committee's 2014 theme, (dis)covered Identities, aims to explore ways by which cultures, cities, and voices define or refine their identity through a global exchange of ideas and conversations covering multiple topics, perspectives, and trends of our time.
