ARPA Journal / Applied Research Practices in Architecture: Call for Abstracts
February 11, 2014 1 Comment
The ARPA Journal is an online, public forum for debates on applied research practices in architecture based at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP). We scrutinize techniques of inquiry to examine their ethical stance and spark ideas for their potential transformation. If the term applied research conventionally describes a practice adulterated by practical concern or funding bias, the journal asks how research can embrace its entangled nature, and experiment with the very problem of autonomy in application.
The inaugural issue, Test Subjects, focuses on the contested nature of application in research. Abstracts accepted on a rotating basis until March 1, 2014. Selected contributions will be due April 1, 2014. Please visit http://arpa.gsapp.org/ie/index.php/journal/.
