Turin, the home of a lively community of historians and a city that has attracted the interest of architectural and urban historians across the whole 20th century, was chosen to host the Third EAHN Meeting in 2014. In accordance with the network's spirit of enhancing communication and encouraging the exchange of research outputs well beyond the boundaries of the European framework, the Third Meeting welcomed a large international community of scholars who delivered and discussed 157 papers and discussion positions. With the aim of recording some of the major outcomes of this very intense programme, seven delegates were asked to review the key issues emerging from the conference sessions, and to outline their underlying methodologies. The result is a cross-section of the discipline that highlights a composite tableau of approaches to the study of the built environment and raises a series of issues affecting our area of investigation, its competencies, instruments, and objects of research.
