CfP: Drawing Millions of Plans Conference. Copenhagen, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK), 1–3 November 2017

Call for Papers: Drawing Millions of Plans Conference. Copenhagen, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK), 1–3 November 2017.

This conference invites scholars and practitioners to investigate and discuss contemporary architectural drawing and, in particular, the drawn plan. We will consider various types of drawing ranging from the sketch to the working drawing as an epistemic and/or generative device, and look at the role of drawing in relation to 3D techniques and drawing in the spectrum between representation and simulation. What types of contemporary plan drawing practices do we know exist today – or should be developed – in relation to architectural education, as well as to design work and actual building practices situated in professional offices?
Scholars and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for papers and/or to submit actual drawings. The conference will consist of academic and work-based sessions, with the latter including presentations of submitted drawings. The drawings will be installed in a pop-up exhibition at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture (KADK). Selected papers and drawings will be published in a peer-reviewed catalogue after the conference.
The full call for papers can be accessed here. More in formation can be found at kadk.dk/drawing-millions-of-plans
For both academic and work-based proposals, we ask for an abstract of maximum 500 words plus a CV of maximum 500 words. Drawing submissions should include up to eight images and contain information about drawing size and media in one pdf no larger than 20 MB. Proposals should be submitted by email to millionsofplans@kadk.dk by 15th May 2017.
The conference will be hosted by the School of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) in Copenhagen, Denmark. Organising committee: Jacob S. Bang, Associate Professor, Martin Søberg, PhD, Assistant Professor, and Anna Katrine Hougaard, PhD.
