Dear Colleagues,

I am guest editor of a 1st issue of 2014 of Journal of Architecture and Urbanism
http://www.tandfonline.com/action/newsAndOffers?journalCode=ttpa20#.UX_rIis9xLI

I would be very grateful if you could distribute broadly this call for papers:

CITY AS POLITICAL SPACE

In recent years mainstream architecture and urbanism has drifted away
from any kind of political engagement, because of the logic of TINA
(There Is No Alternative) architects were forced to became just ‘cogs’
in the neoliberal socio-economic machine. They were expected to
produce colourful effects to please consumers, lend clients an image
and in turn secure capital investment. However, the financial crisis
of 2008 created cracks in this logic and opened up possibilities to
re-introduce the political and socio-political agenda for architecture
and urbanism. Architecture is a creative discipline, but for some
years now the architects ‘use’ of creativity was often limited to new
technology. Yet, the financial crisis has opened up a much wider
spectrum of possibilities and architects can now (again!) engage with
socio-political and economic issues. Several projects presented at the
Venice Biennale 2012 (for example the USA pavilion and "Working with
the 99%" project by ateliermob) and also several recent books (for
example “Spatial Agency. Other ways of doing architecture” by Nishat
Awan, Jeremy Till and Tatjana Schneider or “The Possibility of an
Absolute Architecture” by Pier Vittorio Aureli) show, in very
different ways, new paths for the future - the architecture of
engagement - social, political and economic. The “CITY AS POLITICAL
SPACE” issue of the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism is looking
for papers that focus on aspects of architecture and urbanism that
critically and creatively experiment with new socio-political and
economic models.

Analysed aspects:
Consequences of 2008 financial crisis for Western cities
Contemporary architecture and political ideologies
Architects and urbanists as technocrats or social and political activists
Beyond TINA (There is No Alternative): cities and socio-political
experimentation

Best regards,
