Aims and Scope

Writing has become an important component of the architectural practice. Architects experiment with new writing modalities in order to concretize architectural designs and built forms, or to generate and debate about guidelines and paradigms in architecture. Even literary texts like utopian stories, comics, or urban novels open for architecture imaginative space conceptions that go beyond mere geometrical and functional principles.
