However, one of the rooms during the parallel sessions of papers presentation will be virtual and plenary sessions will be streamed for those who wish to attend online.

• To assess the evolution of architectural research in traditionally matters of interest and the current state of these popular and widespread topics.
• To deepen in the current state and findings of architectural research on subjects akin to post-capitalism and frequently related to equal opportunities and the universal right to personal development and happiness.
• To showcase all kinds of research related to the new and holistic concept of sustainability and to climate emergency.
• To place in the spotlight those ongoing works or available proposals developed by architectural researchers in order to combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
• To underline the capacity of architectural research to develop resiliency and abilities to adapt itself to changing priorities.
• To highlight architecture’s multidisciplinarity as a melting pot of multiple approaches, points of view and expertise.
• To open new perspectives for architectural research by promoting the development of multidisciplinary and inter-university networks and research groups.

The 3rd Valencia International Biennial of Research in Architecture is open to architects, academics, practitioners, professionals and students with a determination to develop research in architecture or neighboring fields.
