CfP: Inter and Transdisciplinarity in Architecture. Athens, 5-8 July 2021

Call for Papers: Inter and Transdisciplinarity in Architecture. Athens, 5-8 July 2021

The Architecture Unit of ATINER, will hold its 1st Hyálinos International Conference on Inter and Transdisciplinarity in Architecture, 5-8 July 2021, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Architecture.
The aim of the conference is to bring together academics and researchers from all areas of Inter and/or Transdisciplinary Relationships in Architecture. The presentations may reflect on, but are not limited to, Architecture and Music, Architecture and Dance, Architecture and Mathematics, Architecture and the Arts, Architecture and Cinema, Architecture and Cosmology, Architecture and Science, Architecture and Philosophy, Harmony in Architecture, Harmonic Proportion, and Architectural Concepts such us: Space, Time, Harmony, Proportion, Notation, Representation, Presentation, Perception, Rhythm, Design, and Composition, etc. The intent is to study both theoretical and practical points of view, exploring, on the one hand, theoretical and practical cases existing in the architectural panorama, and on the other hand, proposing new perspectives and concrete creative situations.
The conference organisers aim to research the following questions (and others):
What disciplines establish a relationship with architecture? How are these interrelationships established? What type of relationship governs their interaction? Is it based on language? Based on concepts? Who establishes such relationships? When do they take place? What is the specific context the individual author? Is there theoretical and continuous support or are these isolated experiences? What ideas are at stake? Why? What periods are most paradigmatic for each type of relationship? In what conceptual contexts? Which authors have put these relationships into practice, and which have theorized about them? What are the results of these inter and/or transdisciplinary relationships? How can one use these experiences as a creative resource?
The answers to these questions will contribute to a new look at architectural culture. You may participate as stream organizer, presenter of one paper, chair a session or observer.
Please submit an abstract to using the abstract submission form that you find on the conference website by the 8 March 2021 to Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University, Portugal or Dr. Maria João Dos Reis Moreira Soares, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, Lusiada University – Lisbon, and Research Fellow, CITAD – Research Centre on Territory, Architecture & Design, Portugal. Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name(s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission.
