Architecture

ACUMEN  
This list supports researchers pursuing the comparative social study of long term (prehistoric to contemporary) urbanisation processes, urban life, and urban landscape development, established as an emergent field of interest at the ACUMEN workshop, 12-13 Dec. 2012 in Leeds. The list is used for learned discussion, research questions, community building, project collaborations, and relevant announcements.

ARCHITECTURE-AND-INTERACTION  
Ubiquitous computing leads to a convergence between architectural design and HCI. HCI - Human-computer interaction research studies human behavior/cognitive events. HCI research methods are valuable for designing buildings that meet users needs. Architects skills are vital for designing interactive technologies in buildings.

ARTSCAPESNET  
This list is used for the participants and presenters of the Artscapes: Urban Art and the Public conference to keep in touch and exchange research ideas.

BISI  
A discussion list for those involved in, or with a particular interest in, the study of the buildings within a social and cultural context.

BUILDING-STONES  
An discussion list for communication regarding building stones, quarrying, sourcing, stone conservation and research and issues relating to these topics.

BUILTENVIRONMENT-HEALTH  
UCL-based list to exchange information on built environment and health research

CINEMUSEUM  
This list is a discussion and announcement forum for researchers, archivists, museum professionals and art practitioners working on cinema, film and the museum. It is a list for scholarly research and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas in any area related to these concerns.

COLLABORATIVE-COMMUNITY-HOUSING  
The seminars and associated announcement list draws attention to the way that collaborative and congregated housing can play a fundamental role in carbon reduction behaviour, green technology adoption, and community resilience. Moreover, we stress the need to conceptualise resilience not only in terms of physical engineering to mitigate or withstand hazards and shocks, but also as social organisational capacities that facilitate affordable access, social cohesion and mutual support across diverse demographic groups. For instance, the cohousing model draws attention to the co-constitution of shared space, collective self-governance and the sense of trust and belonging that accumulates over time through shared meals and collective endeavour. The cohousing approach is collaborative in that it actively embeds self-managed governance structures in the life of the community in a deliberate attempt to increase purposeful interaction between resident members to improve overall quality of life.

CREATIVE-CRITICAL  
This list is for students and researchers of all disciplines who share an interest in creative critical writing. It is used to announce events, calls for papers, publications and other relevant material and, so doing, to foster a sense of community around creative-critical work.

HULFORUM  
This is a list to enable communication and discussion amongst researchers, institutions and practitioners, on the UNESCO Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape.

IAPSPLACE  
This network is designed to facilitate communication and collaboration amongst the members of the IAPS organisation who are interested in matters of place, place attachment and place identity.

ISUF  
ISUF is the international organization of urban form for researchers and practitioners; it seeks to advance research and practice in fields concerned with the built environment.

MMPTEAM  
This list will be used by the team working on Mobility, Mood and Place (MMP); a new research project funded by Research Councils UK through Lifelong Health and Wellbeing.

NEW-TOWNS  
Britain has a rich tradition in planning new towns. They provide many examples of success in delivery new development at scale and providing employment and amenities for new residents. However, our new towns are no longer new and many face significant challenges going into the future. This forum encourages debate about a wide range of research on new towns. This includes: How new settlements in the future can learn from our new towns programme How to update the physical infrastructure of new towns The social history of new towns Heritage and conservation in a new town context What can we learn and share with international experiences of new towns How to improve the environmental sustainability in new towns Different new town models including those led by local authorities and the private sector

PNUK  
Planners Network UK (pnuk) is a collective of practitioners, students, academics and activists developing and supporting critical thinking about the current state of planning in the UK. We want to connect those concerned about the current climate of debate, develop resources to support critical thinking and stimulate debate about alternatives to market-driven planning.

STADTKOLLOQUIUM  
This list is used by postgraduate students and early career researchers in the field of interdisciplinary urban research to make announcements and disseminate information on upcoming conferences, seminars, CFPs, and other events, publications, and projects specifically relevant to postgraduate students. The list also provides a forum for discussions related to the study of cities. It is linked to Stadtkolloquium, an annual interdisciplinary postgraduate workshop based at the UCL Urban Laboratory, but open to anyone interested in urban related questions.

STUDIESOFHOME  
This list is linked to the Centre for Studies of Home, a joint venture between Queen Mary University of London and The Geffrye Museum, UK.
