Int|AR Journal Vol. 3 : Call for papers. 
Sustainable Architecture in Emerging Economies

About Int|AR
Established in 2009 as the first American academic publication focusing on Design and Adaptive Reuse, the Int|AR Journal and its web presence explore this inherently sustainable practice through multi-faceted investigations and paradigmatic examples.

Focus of Volume 3: Emerging Economies
The subject of Volume 03 is the practice of adaptive reuse in emerging economies. Volume 03 aims to shed light on the characteristics of today’s different emergent world markets as they impact issues of energy, historical memory and the reuse of existing structures, infrastructure and cities.

We seek proposals of no more than 250 words on investigations of the challenges of adaptive reuse in emerging economies. Defined as "transforming an unused or underused building into one that serves a new use," the practice of adaptive reuse is enjoying general acceptance and renewed vigor in many parts of the industrialized world due to the urgent need to conserve our natural resources and to minimize the negative impact of building upon the environment. The introduction of this practice to nations currently experiencing rapid growth and industrialization raises new and different issues regarding adaptive reuse. Volume 03 aims to explore these issues, particular to today's emergent world economies*, as they relate to existing structures, infrastructures and cities.

Paper proposals (250 words)  due by June 17, 2011
