Call for Papers: 2nd International Forum on Architecture and Urbanism: Landscapes_Cities_Architecture. Pescara 8-10 November 2018
IFAU 2018 – 2nd International Forum on Architecture and Urbanism aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects related to Landscapes, Cities and Architecture within FRAGILE TERRITORIES. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted for the Fragile Territories in Cities in Transition.
The Forum will concentrate on landscapes, cities and architecture located in contexts and territories that reveal their own fragility. The second edition is expanding the horizon by introducing a series of overlapping visions spanning the recently institutionalised Adriatic-Ionic Euroregion, now extended to the Balkan Region.
The Forum will be structured as a CALL FOR PAPERS/CALL FOR POSTERS subject to peer review by a team of professors from the promoting Universities.
All accepted Papers and Posters will be presented during the FORUM and included in a peer-reviewed volume complete with an ISBN code in the “Architectural Studies and Research” series published by Gangemi Editori . Only the authors of the accepted Papers and Posters will pay a Registration Fee by October 15th 2018 following the indications stated below.
The Forum will be organised in 4 Thematic Sessions:
- Public Spaces In Adriatic And Ionian Cities
- Fragile Transitions: Cities, Plans And Projects Of Urban Resilience
- Phenomena Of Urban Re-Generation
- Sustainability For A Non-Fragile Habitat
