Call for Papers: Building Material 21, Practise
The 21st edition of Building Material seeks papers on the theme of practice in architecture.
Building Material 21 invites submissions that explore the range of architectural possibilities inherent within the word practice in Ireland and elsewhere. Submitted articles must not have been published, nor be under consideration for publication, either online or in print. Written submissions should be a maximum of 4000 words and should be analytical and critical rather than descriptive. While inviting submission of academic papers, it also seeks and encourages interesting essays that fall beyond the academic pale. Shorter articles are welcome, as are graphic works.
Completed articles should be addressed to the editor(s) by 10 February 2017.
All submissions and correspondence should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
