Call for Papers _ 'Changing Building Typologies' (Special Issue, JOSS Autumn/Winter 2014)

Patterns of space usage inside buildings are currently experiencing a noteworthy change. While function used to be a relatively clear descriptor of a building type including typical usage behaviours – everyone knew what a bank and a shop and a library was – the reality of what is happening inside buildings nowadays is much more complex, diverse and multi-layered than a single word can describe. Against this background, we would like to invite scholars to contribute to this Special Issue of the Journal of Space Syntax on ‘Changing Building Typologies’ with original research on themes of the importance of building typologies, comparative studies of buildings, new ways of classifying buildings, mapping the diversity of usage and investigating transformation processes of buildings.

Call for Papers _ 'Models and Diagrams in Architectural Design' (Special Issue, JOSS Spring/Summer 2014)

The Journal of Space Syntax issues a call focused on Architectural and Urban Design, more specifically the topic of Computational Design, Modelling and Diagrammatic Thinking. Of specific interest here is the use of models, diagrams and/or computational methods to generate, transform and develop design ideas and to challenge design knowledge. While the scope of the issue is wide, it is focused on design work, theory of diagrams, modelling and computation in design, and accepts papers in the whole range in-between.
