Call for abstracts: Circular Water Stories

2019-09-08

We like to invite you to submit a one-page outline/extended abstract for papers to be published in the upcoming issue SPOOL LANDSCAPE METROPOLIS # 7:

Circular Water Stories

What can we learn from traditional water systems in terms of the interaction and engagement between people, water, and the (urban)landscape when building resilient and valuable water landscapes for the future?

We are interested in contributions that investigate traditional water systems as a source of inspiration for today’s challenges:

  1. How can we combine decentral and central water management systems to gain awareness of the circularity of water?
  2. How can today's water design stimulate the integration of flora, fauna, and people?
  3. How can designers spatially express all kinds of functions water can have?

SPOOL is a peer-reviewed open-access journal in architecture and the built environment indexed in Google Scholar, DOAJ and in Scopus. For the time being, we do not charge a fee to be published.

  • Call for abstracts: Port Cities - Historical Urban Narratives and Contemporary Design Approaches

    2019-09-06

    We like to invite you to submit a one-page outline/extended abstract for papers to be published in the upcoming issue SPOOL URBAN NARRATIVES # 1:

    Port Cities - Historical Urban Narratives and Contemporary Design Approaches

    The issue investigates port-city narratives and their relevance to the architecture of port cities in two eras: the development of the 19th- and early 20th-centuries, and current transformations:

    1. How may narratives inform designers and how may narratives be used in contemporary design approaches?
    2. What is the role of the architect in the contemporary narrative formation of port cities, particularly in the changing context of port-city relations?
    3. Lastly, how can narratives be a tool for the preservation of the built environment that is built under transnational exchanges?
