CAMEA (Centre for Asian and Middle Eastern Architecture) is located in the School of Architecture and Built Environment (SABE) at the The University of Adelaide, Australia. CAMEA was founded in 1997 to address the demand for new cross-cultural understanding of architecture in the context of major global shifts in three areas: environment, technology, and culture. CAMEA’s past international conferences include:

Self, Place, and Imagination: Cross-Cultural Thinking in Architecture, The University of Adelaide, 1999.

De-Placing Difference: Architecture, Culture and Imaginative Geography, The University of Adelaide, 2002.

The Scaffolding of Empire, The University of Adelaide, 2007.
