CfP: Joelho – Journal of Architectural Culture, Issue 10: Team 10: Debate and Media in Portugal and Spain

Call for Papers: Joelho – Journal of Architectural Culture, Issue 10: Team 10: Debate and Media in Portugal and Spain

Guest Editors: Nuno Correia, Pedro Baía, Carolina B. García Estévez
For issue nº10, the journal Joelho will be published in association with the International Conference «Team Ten Farwest: Critical Revision of the Modern Movement in the Iberian Peninsula, 1953-1981», which will be held in FAUP – Porto University School of Architecture, in 28-30 November 2019 — the year that marks the 60th anniversary of the last CIAM Meeting of 1959, in Otterlo.
For the preparation of this Conference, two preliminary meetings were held, where several contributions of Portuguese and Spanish researchers were presented — in Guimarães, December 2017, and Barcelona, June 2018. These different historiographical perspectives were centred on subjects like the protagonists, the processes, architectural works, urbanism, and representation; from anthropology to cinema, from pedagogy to research, from architectural language to theory, from housing to tourism, from image to criticism.
Joelho 10, guest edited by Nuno Correia, Pedro Baía, Carolina B. García Estévez, proposes to deepen the knowledge about the means of diffusion in the Iberian Peninsula on the ideas coming out of the Team 10 meetings held in Europe between 1953 and 1981.
Articles to be published in Joelho 10 should be focused on the following topics:
Debate — A series of meetings, exhibitions and congresses took place in Portugal and Spain in order to discuss the housing problem and the growth of cities, thus reflecting the debate that was taking place in Team 10 meetings, even when the main theme of those events was not the debate produced by Team 10 itself.
Media — In general, architectural magazines were one of the main medias to spread Team 10 message. Both in Portugal and Spain, different kinds of periodicals kept giving news of the debate generated in those Team 10 meetings and publishing the works of some of their protagonists. However, publications in all forms are suggested for further exploration and debate, such as: architectural magazines, books, manifestos, television shows, radio programmes or documentaries.
Protagonists — There are also many groups or individual personalities who helped to spread and criticize Team 10 ideas and projects. In order to frame the reception and diffusion of Team 10 ideas through Portugal and Spain, it is suggested to recover the influence of the most important contacts between Iberian protagonists and Team 10 members.
The editors welcome full papers in English, up to 4000 words, APA style, which should include the title of the proposal article, the footnotes and an abstract with 250 words. Full Articles will be blind peer reviewed. Proposals must be submitted in Word (.doc format) in the Joelho website: . For any question about the submission of the proposal articles or any problems using the link, please email the guest editors at
Deadline for full paper submission: 17 June 2019
