CALL FOR PAPERS
The Architecture Unit of ATINER organizes A Stream on “Architectural Theory-Aesthetic Issues”, 9-12 July, 2018 as part of the 8th Annual International Conference on Architecture sponsored by the Athens Journal of Architecture.
The stream has a goal to encourage theoreticians and practicing architects to explore and present ideas linked to aesthetic issues regarding the art and science of building activity as communication of cultural, social, and political meanings. In that sense, architecture, incorporating other arts, builds and forms metaphorical and symbolical language in order to express such meanings. Scholars and practitioners are particularly welcome to address contemporary issues in the field of aesthetics regarding architecture and build environment, according to its constant transformational and dynamic process of development. Our dynamic age seems to abandon the idea of coherently defined aesthetic values in architectural and urban design, and in that sense new approaches should be proposed and discussed.
Deadline for abstract submission: March 12, 2018.
