“Composite Cities”

7th edition of EURAU

Faculty of Architecture of Istanbul Technical University

November 12 2014 - November 15 2014

The theme refers to the compositeness of our cities occurring in various forms and various scales; ranging from ever increasing complexity of one-through new urban emergences adding up to the existing urban environment and continuously redefining our urban experience- to tranquility of another-still holding different urban conditions stitching together to an enriched urban experience. Thus the conference aims to enable a medium to discuss the complex relationship between urban form and urban experience through the composite character of our cities explained in four topics-possible states of composite being: hybrid city, morphed city, fragmented city  and mutated city. The conference is expected to evolve around the question of “how?”s of architectural practice for the composite city. Hence, the essentials of architectural realities- scale, order, space, place, program, content, identity …- will define the backbone of the discussions.

The abstract submission deadline is extended to April 30, 2014
