Call for Papers

We invite submissions of articles from any discipline to speculate on the formation of your projects/ buildings/ performances as a critical practice that activates our understanding of intuition, inventory and discovery in architecture. The four areas of interest include:

1. Ecological design visions.
2. Notational design
3. Instructional design visions.
4. Aesthetical design visions

We also welcome case studies and project profiles of 1–5 pages in length.

Submissions
Submissions are welcome from both scholars and practitioners. Contributions may be between 3,000 and 7,000 words and should be accessible to the non-specialist reader. Papers must be submitted in English.

Please send all submissions to: shaun@eniatype.com

Design Ecologies was set up as a platform for state-of-the-art experiments that link architecture, technology and philosophy. Dividing its remit between events - most recently exhibitions and seminars at the Architectural Association and the Royal College of Art - and publications, Design Ecologies officially launched with its inaugural journal issue in January 2011. A second issue, The Unprimed Canvas - named after an offhand remark by Francis Bacon, to the effect that he considered the process of painting to start with priming the canvas, not assuming it had already been primed - followed later that year, and saw Timothy Morton contribute an editorial. The third issue, the Ill-Defined Niche, we had the editorial written by the inimitable Nick Land. The fourth issue, a sentient relic described a double-edged sword theory – one edge exposing the dominant ‘theory chic’ of contemporary architecture and the other cutting opening the for a more dangerous conception of design- a guide, a tool for plotting a cryptic cartography with strategic precision. In the last issue, Design Ecologies 3.1: Chthonic Deluge, we were honoured to have the ideation article written by the very best hard science fiction writer Peter Watts, who is an author, felon and former marine biologist whose background informs science fiction on the hard end of the scale (in fact his novel Blindsight has been used as a core text for undergraduate courses ranging from ‘Philosophy of Mind’ to ‘Introductory Neuropsychology’). His work is available in eighteen languages.

Design Ecologies 4.1&2: Tipping Points

Submission deadline: Friday 28th November 2014

Design Ecologies 4.1&2: Tipping points addresses the consequences that humans have become the dominant driver of almost all natural processes in the biosphere.
Anthropogenic changes are leading to a reshuffling of species assemblies from local to global spatial scales and, additionally, novel organisms created in laboratories and design studios enter ecosystems. It is expected that these changes are leading to new behaviours of ecological systems and ‘tipping points’ is becoming widely acknowledged.

For Design Ecologies 4.1: Tipping Points, we have invited Roy Ascott to write the ideation article in response to the other article selected for this issue of Design Ecologies.

We invite submissions of articles from any discipline to speculate on the formation of your projects/ buildings/ performances as a critical practice that activates our understanding of intuition, inventory and discovery in architecture.
The four areas of interest include:

1. Ecological design visions.
2. Notational design
3. Instructional design visions.
4. Aesthetical design visions
We also welcome case studies and project profiles of 1–5 pages in length
