Call for papers Argument 16/2024: “Postures of Space-Volumetric Form”

Architectural forms are designed, understood, interpreted, inhabited, and utilized in various ways, all equally valid. Posture depends on the state of the individual interacting with the architecture and is, in turn, transformed by that interaction. How and in what different contexts do spatial-volumetric forms shape certain postures? What is the impact of spatial-volumetric form on our relationship with it? Which postures can be considered relevant in defining space? and what defines the posture in the specific context? These are just a few introductory questions raised by the issue at hand. We invite you to explore this subject in Issue 16 of the Argument journal, examining it both from within and outside the field of architecture.

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.
