2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar: Call for papers

Rovaniemi, Finland 16-18 February 2015

February 16 2015 - February 18 2015

The 2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar, “Aalto beyond Finland. Architecture and Design” aims to create a network of researchers interested in the work of the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The meeting in Rovaniemi, in February 2015, will be an opportunity to present up-to-date research and provide a significant meeting point for those fascinated by Aalto’s buildings and projects, in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.

Aalto’s work has had an exceptional impact beyond Finland since the opening of his office in Turku in 1927. Before World War II, his furniture was exhibited in strategic venues in Europe and America, from which Aalto established a solid network of professional contacts. During the post-war period, he took on many assignments and received great recognition in various foreign countries. His buildings, scattered around the world, as well as his unrealised projects, contributed to spreading Aalto’s design method in different architectural communities, thereby proving its validity outside Finland. Even countries in which Aalto did not design any projects or construct any buildings, such as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and Portugal, were influenced by his work. Although recent scholarly studies have contributed to an exploration of Aalto’s work abroad and its impact in the international context, they are fragmented, dwelling on national questions, without a holistic view. The 2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar “Aalto beyond Finland. Architecture and Design” strives for a comprehensive survey of the impact of Aalto’s architectural and design works abroad, in order to highlight those thematic communalities and connections among different international experiences.

Production Sites: Resituating the culture of architectural knowledge

The Bartlett/UCL and University of Sydney

January 15 2015

Production sites is a symposium that scrutinises new cultures of architectural knowledge by examining the sites where knowledge is produced.  As a discipline, architecture has largely framed knowledge through the idea of building types, formal styles or sites for design action. Yet participatory design modes, digital technologies, and event-based models present alternatives that probe the divisions between real and  imaginary sites,  experiential and ideatic encounters, aesthetics and technology. The theme is a response to fundamental transformations in terms of how cultural knowledge and meaning are currently produced.

Journal of Architecture and Urbanism 

(Taylor and Francis/ Routledge)



Theme of the issue

Rethinking Le Corbusier: Urban Design and History


Summary of the subject and premise

It is generally believed that Le Corbusier’s urban planning made a break with the past, and that the public spaces designed by him had nothing to do with anything that existed before – a conviction fostered by both the innovative character of his proposals and by the proliferation in his manifestos of watchwords that mask any evocation of the past. However, in his writings, Le Corbusier often mentioned the powerful analogy that exists between the architecture of other times and the logic of modern production; and although this causal relationship has often been demonstrated with respect to his architecture, it has rarely been extended to the public space. This special issue of the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism aims to fill that gap by systematically analysing Le Corbusier’s relationship with the history of urbanism. Articles may focus on his reflections on the public space of earlier times, the influence that this had on his own output, the relationship of his proposals with the pre-existing city, and other subjects that clarify the affinity that he established with the past within urban design. They may deal with any period of his career and training, but should offer new perspectives on his public spaces and their relationship with history.
