Call for Papers JoSS 7(1): Spatial Cultures
|The coming issue of the Journal of Space Syntax (7:1) raises the question of socio-cultural relations to space. This intends to highlight the question of cultural specificity in the formation of space, but also the ways through which culture takes form and shape, and how culture affects relations to spatial formation. On one hand, different cultures have different spatial traditions seen as how various building types are formed, what types there are, and how they are aggregated in settlements. On the other hand, different cultures invest in space differently, be it in regards to what is manifested, or to what extent society is manifested through built form. Thirdly, however, there are architectural forms more deliberately or explicitly meant to hold, communicate or exhibit cultural production - such as museums, libraries, cinemas, culture houses, and similar buildings, or public spaces of art or cultural events.
