Call for Papers: Intentionen | Intentions. Design and Research in Architecture & Landscape. Hannover, 23-25 April 2020

10th international Symposium + PhD PeerReview
Faculty of Architecture and Landscape Sciences, Leibniz Universität Hannover
The symposium focuses on the production and communication of knowledge about architecture and landscape architecture connected with design-related research projects. The call is directed towards theorists, practicing architects, landscape architects and to PhD students or early Post Docs of both disciplines.
Research-related design and design-related research in architecture, urban design and landscape architecture are generated, supported and structured by intentions as conscious purpose and position as well as intended content of perception, thought and action. The symposium will examine modes of action and meanings of intentions. How do they have an orienting, clarifying and dynamic effect within the processes of design and research, and how do they contribute to design and knowledge? What tensions arise between imprint, orientation and the projective, between research, imagination and realization, and how can these be evaluated, communicated and conveyed in a transferable way? Last but not least it is about the relevance of the reflexive handling of intentions in the context of high-quality design of the human living environment. The questions are addressed equally to designers of architecture and landscape, urban planners, as well as artistic designers and theorists.
The full call for papers can be downloaded here.
Abstracts including own individual research objectives, approaches and possible results which relate to the topic of the symposium (max. 500 words, German or English) and a short CV are to be submitted to m.buchert@igt-arch.uni-hannover.de by 29 February 2020. A publication of selected papers is planned.
