  • Footprint 29: The Architecture of Populism: Media, Politics, and Aesthetics


    The Call for Contributions for Footprint 29 is out now.

    Léa-Catherine Szacka and Salomon Frausto will be the editors of this issue, dedicated to the theme "The Architecture of Populism: Media, Politics, and Aesthetics ". This issue of Footprint seeks to explore new interpretations of the architectural ramification of populism intended as a political approach and strategy that strives to appeal to ‘common’ men or women who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elites and intellectuals. This call is open for full articles (6000–8000 words) as well as for review articles (2000 – 4000 words) and visual essays (2000 words, 2 – 5 images) that offer insight into the relation between architecture and populism. Full articles must be submitted on Footprint’s online platform before 1 November 2020 and will go through a double-blind peer-review process. Authors interested in contributing review articles or visual essays should contact the editors before 1 November 2020 with an extended abstract of their proposal (500 words). The editors will select from the proposed review articles based on thematic relevance, innovativeness and evidence of an explorative academic level. A guide to Footprint’s preferred editorial and reference style is available at

    Footprint 29 will be published in Autumn 2021. For submissions and inquiries, please contact editors Léa-Catherine Szacka and Salomon Frausto at
