The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara, in collaboration with AIA Santa Barbara, will present two programs exploring the architectural history of the island of Cyprus as part of Architectural Appreciation Weeks.

Art historian Allan Langdale, Ph.D. will give a slide lecture titled “In a Contested Realm: the Historical Architecture of Northern Cyprus” at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

A screening of his documentary film, The Stones of Famagusta: The History of a Forgotten City, will be held at 7 p.m. July 18.

Both presentations are free to the public and will be held at the Acheson House, 229 E. Victoria St. in Santa Barbara.

Langdale has conducted extensive field research in Cyprus. He served as assistant professor at the Eastern Mediterranean University in Famagusta, Cyprus, from 2005-07. Langdale is a popular lecturer in the Film and Media Department at the UCSB and he has taught classes at UC Santa Cruz and Santa Clara University. With numerous publications to his credit, he is writing a book about the historic architecture of North Cyprus.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
