ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH CENTERS CONSORTIUM
2013 ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH CONFERENCE
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHARLOTTE
MARCH 27-31, 2013
> CALL FOR PAPERS
ABSTRACTS DUE: OCTOBER 8, 2012
FULL PAPERS DUE: JANUARY 21, 2013
Historically, society has recognized architects for their role in the creation of buildings and less so for their role in the production of knowledge. Research advances the discipline of architecture by introducing new ideas, defining methodology, testing questions, developing technology, and promoting critical discourse. Yet exactly how research shapes design and the built environment is not always clear. For many, its contributions remain all but invisible.
The theme of the Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC) 2013 Architectural Research Conference is visibility, in all its possible connotations. The goal of this year’s conference is to interrogate the idea of visibility from a variety of perspectives in order to bring research itself into sharper focus. The conference committee welcomes researchers, educators, and practitioners in architecture and affiliated design professions to participate and invites paper submissions on new and continuing research.
Session Topics include:
- POLICY – educating policymakers, practitioners, and the public
- CULTURE – making visible: new ideas, minor voices, and topics on the margins
- SUSTAINABILTY – visualizing sustainability and performance in buildings
- HISTORY – maps, media, and models in architectural history
- URBANISM – technology, connectedness, and the urban environment
- CONSTRUCTION – innovations in materials and construction visualization
- PEDAGOGY – new visions and revisions in architectural education
- OPEN SESSION
The paper review process of this conference will be conducted in two stages. The first stage will involve a blind peer review of abstracts. Successful review at the abstract stage will result in an invitation to submit a full paper for a second-stage blind peer review. All abstracts and papers will be submitted through an online interface and must adhere to conference guidelines. Authors are limited to one submission per session topic.
