CpA issue 5 aims to Data-integrated Approaches by inviting experts from a range of disciplines concerned with environmental degradation that utilize data-acquisition, data-sharing and integration, and data-driven modelling to identify modalities for a broader interdisciplinary, multi-domain and multi-scalar approach. Deadline for submissions is 10/05/2021.Read more about Spool CpA 5: Interdisciplinary Data-integrated Approaches

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

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

The focus of this issue of SPOOL is on the garden as a landscape theatre for the metropolis. In this context, we are looking for two types of contributions:
- papers that take specific cases - e.g. an existing garden that has adopted a new role when their context changed under the influence of metropolitan conditions, or a reflection on a design that successfully operates within a metropolitan context - as an entry for an argument on the role of the garden in the metropolitan condition
- projects an experimental design (proposal), or an artistic expression. The contribution should support critical investigations and promote scholarly discourse on the arts and design culture in the field of the built environment. We are looking for practices and ideas drawn from the fine and other arts and environmental disciplines that have demonstrable relevance for contemporary theory and practice in the spatial design disciplines.

Building-as-Apparatus or Cyber-physical Apparatization in/of Architecture will be published in Cyber-physical Architecture #2, 2019, which is a new 'thread' in SPOOL [SPOOL CpA] and will address the following topic:
Transitioning from mechanical and analogue electronics towards digital electronics, all facets of human society have undergone sweeping transformations not only in material production and economy but also in ideologies and worldviews. Along the way, the accelerating digitalisation has produced layers of complex apparatuses and vast arrays of interdependencies. Architecture is no exception in the tidal wave of changes.Read more about Call for papers: Building-as-Apparatus or Cyber-physical Apparatization in/of Architecture
