CfP: Migration and exile among architects, urbanists and landscape architects in the modern era

Call for Papers: Migration and exile among architects, urbanists and landscape architects in the modern era.

Les Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère.

The migration of an architect, urbanist or landscape architect might appear an epiphenomenon, compared to other catastrophes of the twentieth century. But the number and diversity of these trajectories have much to teach us about the spread of ideas, techniques and know-how in modern times. Whether caused by economic migration, political exile, exodus or escape, these ‘enforced journeys’ need to be understood and evaluated.
This special issue calls for an analysis of both the causes and the effects of cultural migration at the international, national, collective or individual scale. Questions of a personal, professional or theoretical nature will be included.
