Call For Papers

Boundaries introduces the first call for papers for the second issue of the review (October - December 2011), the focus is on: «Architectures for Emergencies».

The second issue of Boundaries International Architectural Magazine focuses on the role of the architecture in the emergency situations. Even if they are considered as special events – something rarely happening – emergencies are, in many cases, an everyday reality: from natural to man-made disasters, and architecture must face a broad variety of emergency circumstances. Can we speak about “architecture” at a given historical moment or in certain geographic areas?

Which is the role, what can we expect and what reliability could be placed in architecture in specific contexts? How do architects react to situations like: destruction – physical and/or of the memory –, presence of ruins, restoration and reconstruction, and how does all that interacts with human perception of the environment?

Contributions on any aspect of these topics, on which we wish to open a wide interdisciplinary debate with the second issue of Boundaries, are encouraged. All kinds of approaches to this topic are welcomed, and papers can be case studies oriented, or methodological and/or theoretical in focus.

The deadline for submission is August 24, 2011.

Contributors are invited to submit an abstract (maximum 300 words and three images), and a short biography stating their affiliation and professional interests (maximum 100 words), in English or Italian.

All submission of abstracts should be sent by email to redazione@boundaries.it (up to 15 Mb) before August 24, 2011.

The papers will be selected by the editorial board and subjected to evaluation with the blind peer review system. The authors will receive an answer before August 29, 2011.

Articles should be sent to the editorial board, in the definitive form and with illustrations (free from reproduction rights), before September 13, 2011.

Articles length must be at least 2 and no more than 4 pages (between 4000-8000 characters), notes and bibliography included. Contributions must be original and should not have been previously published, even in part.
