Building Material

"Public": Call for contributions

March 02 2018

Public: The 22nd edition of Building Material seeks papers on the theme of the public in architecture.
Architecture is a public affair, its impact shared if not always evenly distributed. The vacillating boundaries of what constitutes public life, public realm or the 'public interest' are forever a contested space in which the ideologies of architecture are made explicit. A public act most commonly commissioned by private parties, the design and realisation of the built environment requires a reciprocity between collective and individual needs that often results in complex relationships of competing interests. The question, perhaps, is where does the public aspect of architecture reside and how might it be calibrated?
Building Material 22 invites submissions that explore the range of architectural possibilities inherent within the word 'public' in Ireland and elsewhere. Submitted articles must not have been published, nor be under consideration for publication, either online or in print. Written submissions should be a maximum of 4000 words and should be analytical and critical rather than descriptive. While inviting submission of academic papers, it also seeks and encourages interesting essays that fall beyond the academic pale. Shorter articles are welcome, as are graphic works. Building Material is a peer reviewed journal and all submissions shall be assessed by two independent reviewers. Submissions not intended for peer-review are also welcome. A distinction will be made between peer-reviewed research articles and other material.

15th Annual AHRA PhD Student Symposium: Using History

Call for Papers

Aalto University, Helsinki

June 11 2018 - June 12 2018

Recent decades have seen several critical accounts of history, reviewing its methods and premises, questioning its narrative techniques and revealing its uses and abuses for political ends. Against becoming a refuge from the present, or a consolation, this kind of history sees its task as reminding societies and collectives of things that have been forgotten or covered up.
Additionally, architectural research has been in dialogue with different specialised fields of history: cultural and political history, but also economic history, history of media and technology, history of everyday life. Studies in conservation history have relied on technical history and history of science.
To study this multi-faceted relationship, our conference calls PhD candidates to reflect on the various uses of history and historical knowledge in architectural research and practice in the most broad sense. Speakers are also welcome to reflect on the role of history in their own research. Proposals will be welcomed from PhD candidates in the areas of theory and history of architecture and landscape, conservation and heritage, urban design and history, as well as relevant adjacent fields and interdisciplinary research.

Key Dates:

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 16 February 2018 Successful applicants informed: 13 March 2018
Submission of extended abstracts (1200 words): 1 June 2018

AHRA Symposium: 11–12 June 2018
Tour on Finnish modernism and the architecture of Alvar Aalto (optional): 12 June 2018

Generosity

An international conference at the Welsh School of Architecture,Cardiff, UK

Cardiff, Wales, UK

June 28 2018 - June 29 2018

Event web site

web site thumbnail available soon

Generosity is associated with the act of giving or sharing more than is necessary, with bravery, with notions of a benefactor and a recipient, and with a quality of being plentiful or expansive. From a stance of celebrating and questioning architecture's potential for generosity, this call for papers invites academics and creative practitioners to explore ways in which architecture aspires to, or may be expected to, give more than is necessary. This could be considered within the current economic context of austerity or within the broader historic context of a discipline often working in frameworks focused on cost and quantitative measurement. Reflections are welcomed which critically examine themes of Generosity as related to architecture and related fields, whether they be from a conceptual or theoretical position, embedded in everyday processes and expectations of practice, or from considerations of procurement, regulation, and policy.
