Call For Papers

As designers, observers and thinkers we create ideas and utopias for living, analyze and question existing systems, develop curiosity and criticism towards our environment and explore inherent meanings. Urban space is a fertile ground where spatial disciplines not only merge but also intersect with lives and memories of people.
Within this point of view, muiscarch’17 invites all undergraduate students of Architecture, Interior Architecture, Nautical Design, Anthropology, Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology and Film/Media Studies to the international congress and a workshop under the theme: Designing with(in) İstanbul
This year’s theme is a call for interdisciplinary participation on multilayered histories, qualities and parameters of urban space which are reflected either in a major or a minor scale. In that sense, İstanbul can be seen as an urban promoter
with its long urban history, sociocultural diversity and continuous transformation. The focus of studies can be student projects, case studies, identification or comparisons of realized projects, manifests, utopias and dystopias, criticism on non-realized/unfinished projects. muiscarch’17 participants are not obliged to relate their papers to İstanbul. They are
expected to propose a creative thinking on the impact of urbanity on space/place creating. Students are also expected to relate their ideas to the specified topics of the congress.
