Call for papers Argument 15/2023: “Concept and materiality in architecture”

The topic debated in the last number of the journal, dedicated to materiality and perception, brought in front of the interested public approaches with various directions, specific to the domain or multidisciplinary. The polemic around materiality demonstrates on the one hand the actuality of the topic, and on the other hand the preference for pragmatic or ideal approaches of the material “embodied” in architecture. Following the interest shown towards the subject we invite you to continue the debate in the pages of the 15th no. of Argument journal. From concept to materialization, from materiality as concept to the perception of materiality, from material to immaterial, all these are possible perspectives upon the subject. We equally encourage approaches from within and from without architecture, interdisciplinary approaches, new approaches or approaches that shed a new light upon the subject, possible or established visions upon materiality.

The conference and the associated publication remain open to interested professionals, to researchers, academic staff, students and PhD candidates that study disciplines like architecture, interior design, urban planning, landscape design, arts, urban geography, sociology and anthropology etc.
