Inter and Transdisciplinary Relationships in Architecture
Stream Leader:
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Academic Member, ATINER, Researcher at CITAD, Lusíada University, Lisbon, Portugal.

The aim of the stream is to bring together academics and researchers from all areas of Architecture’s Inter And Trans Interdisciplinary Relationships. Presentation may reflect on, but are not limited to, Architecture and Music, Architecture and Mathematics, Architecture and the Arts, Architecture and Cinema, Architecture and Cosmology, Architecture and Science, Architecture and Philosophy, Harmony in Architecture, Harmonic Proportion, Architectural Concepts such us: Space, Time, Harmony, Proportion, Notation, Representation, Presentation, Perception, Rhythm, Design, Composition; Which disciplines interact with architecture? Why these particular disciplines? In what way(s) do they interact with architecture? What type of relationship governs their interaction? Is it based on language? Based on concepts? When do such relationships take place? What periods are most paradigmatic for each type of relationship? In what conceptual contexts? Which authors have put these relationships into practice and which have theorized on them? What are the results of these inter or/and transdisciplinary relationships?

Crossings on Body and Architecture
Stream Leader:
Dr. Maria João Dos Reis Moreira Soares, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, Lusiada University – Lisbon, and Research Fellow, CITAD – Research Centre on Territory, Architecture & Design, Portugal.

The aim of this research stream is to establish a platform of debate for academics, practitioners and researchers with regard to a landscape of relations that traverses both notions of Body and Architecture. To this landscape can contribute a wide range of concepts or principles – for example: movement, existence, non-existence, matter, space, time, duration, being, becoming, embodiment, disembodiment, interiority, exteriority, LIFE – imbedded in disciplines as diverse as Dance, Philosophy, Aesthetics, Ethics, Art, History, Science, Neuroscience, to name just a few. Through the various disciplines and concepts, this stream of research seeks to “build” an overlaid structure that houses Body and Architecture in an interchangeable context. “We move not to populate space, not to extend it or to embody it, but to create it.” (Erin Manning in Relationscapes: Movement, Art, Philosophy, 2009).

Architectures of Silence and the Creation of Atmospheres
Stream Leaders:
Dr. José Ángel Hidalgo Arellano, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, Xi’An Jiaotong – Liverpool University, Suzhou, China
Dr. Joan Ramon Cornellana Díaz, Associate Professor, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain

It is already more than a century ago, when Søren Kierkegaard exclaimed in front of a ‘diseased world’: “Create silence! Bring people to silence!”. Almost one century later, Louis I. Kahn would state that in front of the presence of the eternal works of art (he was talking about the pyramids) “prevails the feeling ‘Silence’, from which is felt Man’s desire to express. This before the first stone was laid.” Already in our days, Peter Zumthor has written that the atmosphere is created “either by tensioning the air with matter and light or by tensioning the air with sounds and silences.”
This triple reflection (ethical, artistic and architectural) encourages researchers and practitioners to tackle urban and architectural current issues. Whether there were acoustic pollution, lack of intimacy or brisk professional practice, silence seems to be in the center of architectural production, either as a disregarded aspect or as a desired unreachable object.
We accept presentations from the fields of humanistic, artistic and architectural field, that reflect on silence. Case studies, theoretical essays and critical essays in the area of artistic and architectural production are very welcome. This stream wants to give some light to the question: how can silence frame our architectural activity?
