Call for Papers: The Companion to Architectural Research (CAP)

Why is research important in architecture?

December 01 2020 - December 01 2020

The publication will offer a platform to facilitate future lines of inquiry, while also providing an overview of established and emerging understandings of architectural research. Oftentimes, architectural research supports education both directly, through research training of future architects, and indirectly, by providing for the continual advancement of the discipline, but what is architectural research? This companion will debate this question and invites contributions that conceptualize the particular state of architectural research today, proposes methodologies to better understand architectural research, and/or discusses concrete case studies that highlight a historical dimension of architectural knowledge and the contemporary importance.

CAP accepts manuscripts written in English, 6,000 words maximum (including footnotes and bibliography).

Dec 2020 Deadline for paper submissions. Please email proposals and manuscripts to: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The 2021 AHRA conference will question what the ‘region’ and ‘regional’ mean for architectural cultures past and present, and to speculate on what different forms and formulations they might take in future.

The formal call for papers will open in early 2021 and more details will be posted in due course. In the meantime, the organisers have posted some of the thematic priorities as well as an outline discussion on the conference website.
