CfP: Theoretical legacy. 15 September 2018

Call for Papers: Theoretical legacy. 15 September 2018

Cahiers de la Recherche Architecturale Urbaine et Paysagère

This issue of the Cahiers de la Recherche Architecturale Urbaine et Paysagère focuses on the theoretical sources used within the practice of architects, urban planners, landscape architects and, more generally, those who design space in contemporary life. Within the plurality of conceptual approaches, this issue will examine the aspects which have been adopted from previously formulated theories and doctrines. This topic also questions the interrelation between the creator’s journey and their context, in order to pinpoint the nature of their field of reference. Where do project processes form within theoretical expressions? From which disciplinary sources do creators draw from in order to find their discourse and their practice?
In order to outline potential responses – and without claiming to be exhaustive – this special issue proposes to shed light on the diversity, and perhaps the articulation of adopted theories present in architecture, urbanism and landscape.
The full call for papers is available here.
Proposals for articles will be sent by e-mail before 15 September 2018 to the Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère editorial office secretariat-craup@culture.gouv.fr
The articles must not exceed 30 000 characters, including spaces. Languages accepted: French, English.
Articles must be accompanied by:

  • 1 biobibliographical record between 5 to 10 lines (name and first name of the author (s), professional status and / or titles, possible institutional link, research themes, latest publications, e-mail address).
  • 2 abstracts in French and English.
  • 5 key words in French and English.
