Stoà Open Seminar Conference

October 6, 2023
As part of the research endeavors undertaken by the editorial board of Stoà, the inaugural Stoà Open Seminar is scheduled to be held on October 6, 2023, at the Politecnico di Milano. The primary objective of this event is to provide a platform for a broader and more comprehensive collective introspection concerning the subject of architectural design pedagogy, thereby fostering an inclusive and multidisciplinary dialogue.
The seminar warmly invites the participation of scholars, doctoral students, researchers, and educators. Those interested in taking part in the seminar are required to submit an abstract, not exceeding 1500 characters, in .pdf format to the designated email address
The abstract should offer a prospective response to the following inquiry: “Architectural design pedagogy, in contrast to other pedagogies, draws from both theories and practices, contingencies, and immanences. What critical issues might arise for those involved in teaching, studying, and contributing to architectural design pedagogy, ultimately qualifying as central themes meriting in-depth exploration through the construction of a monographic issue of the journal, focused on pedagogical tools for architectural design teaching?”
Each participant is expected to discuss a distinct theme, elucidating its impact, whether confirmed or potential, on pedagogical activities pertaining to architectural design and its various disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts. Contributions in both Italian and English are welcome, although the in-person seminar proceedings will predominantly be conducted in Italian. The abstract submission deadline is set for August 28, 2023, and the outcomes of the evaluation process will be communicated to selected participants by September 4.
For any inquiries or further information, kindly direct correspondence to Presentations during the seminar may be augmented by the inclusion of image projections.
The results of the seminar will be published in a dedicated special supplement to the journal.
More information can be found on the journal website.
