1st Hyálinos International Conference on Inter and Transdisciplinarity in Architecture
Academics Responsible:
Dr. Alberto Reaes Pinto, Coordinator / Professor, ULL – CITAD (Research Centre, ULL) / Lusíada University of Lisbon, Portugal.
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University and Associate Professor, ISMAT (Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes), Portugal.
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 the conference is to bring together academics and researchers from all areas of Inter and/or Transdisciplinary Relationships in Architecture. The presentations may reflect on, but are not limited to, Architecture and Music, Architecture and Dance, Architecture and Mathematics, Architecture and the Arts, Architecture and Cinema, Architecture and Cosmology, Architecture and Science, Architecture and Philosophy, Harmony in Architecture, Harmonic Proportion, and Architectural Concepts such us: Space, Time, Harmony, Proportion, Notation, Representation, Presentation, Perception, Rhythm, Design, and Composition, etc. The intent is to study both theoretical and practical points of view, exploring, on the one hand, theoretical and practical cases existing in the architectural panorama, and on the other hand, proposing new perspectives and concrete creative situations. We aim to research the following questions (and others): What disciplines establish a relationship with architecture? How are these interrelationships established? What type of relationship governs their interaction? Is it based on language? Based on concepts? Who establishes such relationships? When do they take place? What is the specific context the individual author? Is there theoretical and continuous support or are these isolated experiences? What ideas are at stake? Why? 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 about them? What are the results of these inter and/or transdisciplinary relationships? How can one use these experiences as a creative resource? It is our belief that finding the answers to these questions will contribute to a new look at architectural culture.

Architecture and Religion
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University and Associate Professor, ISMAT (Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes), Portugal.
Religion is one element which, since the birth of mankind, has contributed significantly to doing and thinking architecture. It is one of the factors not external to man that have most influenced the image and purpose of architecture. Religion has manifested itself in architecture through its various forms – be they spatial, typological, construction-related, symbolic, functional, etc. And whilst this manifestation has made itself felt most directly in sacred architecture, secular architecture also shows signs of that influence. This Call for Papers sets out to present and discuss the various relationships that have established themselves between architecture and religion. Authors are invited to submit papers that reflect on how specific aspects of the various religions are revealed in architecture and/or to present and discuss a comparative study of these aspects for the different religions. Subject matters such as: the permanence of forms over time that have to do with religion; typologies and rituals; the influence of architecture on religious practices; the influence of exterior religions on architecture; the influence of religion on secular architecture; the influence of religion on decoration, etc., are welcome. The submitted papers will be considered for a special issue on Religion and Architecture of the Athens Journal of Architecture.

Architecture as a Place of Encounter of Traditions
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University and Associate Professor, ISMAT (Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes), Portugal.
Since time immemorial, architecture has given rise to diverse traditions and consolidated itself through them. One can indeed speak of traditions that correspond to different ways of thinking and constructing architectures that vary in accordance with the period in time, geography, culture, etc. One can generically refer to them as vernacular, popular, erudite, domestic, foreign, local, international, classical, modern, etc. Oftentimes these traditions take the form of dialogue, reciprocal assimilation or contrast, for example in the pairings vernacular/erudite, popular/erudite, domestic/foreign, local/international, classical/modern. The encounter of differing traditions manifests itself recognisably in the thought and/or work of various architects. In that encounter lies a large part of the interest in said though and/or work. That encounter is also frequently an instrument for experimentation with and evolution of architecture. Here one can cite as examples Hermann Muthesius and his interest in English residential design, Frank Lloyd Wright and his interest in the vernacular architecture of distant Japan, Alvar Aalto and the influence of the Finnish vernacular, Hassan Fathy and the confrontation between the International Style and Egyptian vernacular, etc. This symposium sets out to present and discuss why and how different architects thought and built architecture as a place of encounter for various traditions and how that encounter gave rise to rich and enriching work, both for the architecture of the day and of the future.

Architecture and Representation
Academic Responsible: Dr. João Miguel Couto Duarte, Assistant Professor/Research Fellow, CITAD – Lusíada University, Portugal.
The aim of this symposium is to explore the relationships that develop between representation and architecture, whereby representation is understood as a means of thinking architecture, one that thus encompasses the drawing and the model, but also, among other things, text, computation, 3D modelling, photography and film, as well as architecture considered independently of its facticity.
Researchers, academics and practitioners are invited to contribute with their thoughts on the impact of the representation on understanding architecture, their observations on representation considering the fullness of its possibilities – as a design support; as a speculative instrument; as a registration of pleasure; etc. Some questions that may be examined are the definition of representational relationships; the bonds established between the representation and its object; design representational systems and their evolution; and the similarities and differences between different representational systems. With its desire for openness, this symposium encompasses first and foremost the field of architectural design, but also, among other areas, the fields of the history and theory of architectural design, the history and theory of representation, the field of philosophy, and the field of semiotics.
