Architectural Form in Relation to its Purposes
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Llazar Kumaraku, Academic Member, ATINER & Head of Scientific Research Department, Polis University of Tirana, Albania.
In the discipline of architecture, as pointed out by many intellectuals, in the current global panorama there is clearly a disconnection between theoretical research and the practice of making architecture. Often the goals of architecture are confused with research in architecture. While we all agree that the goals of architecture are all positive, the problem is exposed at the methodological level as to how these goals are achieved from the formal point of view. This special session within the Architecture Conference in Athens aims to collect scientific articles related to methodological research and the composition of architectural form in the current global panorama, which can focus on different purposes. If nowadays the keywords that can be interpreted as the goals of architecture are for example sustainability or resilience, the research question on how the form of architecture could be sustainable, relational, or resilient, is almost never raised. This session is open to papers that focus their research on the composition of form at the urban and/or architectural level in order to achieve the above goals.
Deadline: 5 December 2022
