The Call for Contributions for Footprint 31 is out now.
Jorge Mejía and Esin Komez Daglioglu will be the editors of this issue, dedicated to ‘Open Architecture: Tradition, Possibilities, and Shortcomings.’ This issue of Footprint intends to produce and develop knowledge on the ways in which architecture can be open in structural, procedural, performative and/or conceptual terms; and welcomes contributions that critically and creatively study past, present and future open architectures by defining their utility and value (or the lack thereof), explaining the methodological advantages and disadvantages of their use, or justifying alternative conceptualisations for their nature. Proposals for full articles (6000–8000 words) and review articles (2000–4000 words) will be evaluated by the editors in the form of abstracts (max. 1000 words for full articles, max. 500 words for review articles) submitted by 3 May 2021. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to develop their contributions by 6 September 2021.
Full articles will go through a double-blind peer review process, while review articles will be evaluated by the editors. Footprint 31 will be published in the autumn of 2022.
