Call for Papers: Standard Architecture
20th - 22nd October 2017, Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
DATE: 1/6/2017
"From 20 – 22 october 2017, the international symposium Standard Architecture will be held at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt am Main. With this open call, we are soliciting lecture proposals for the Young Researcher Forum on 20 October 2017. To submit a proposal, please email your abstract and CV in PDF form (max 5 MB) by 1 June 2017 to oswalt@asl.uni-kassel.de. We will select around five proposals from the different submissions by mid of June. We can offer a grant for part of the travelling costs.

We especially welcome contributions that address how standardization influences architectural design and the role of architects. We’re interested in diverse approaches to the topic—whether the proposal undertakes a critical analysis of technical developments and their ramifications, or instead engages with something like the associative cultural resonances of standardization processes in the designs of O.M. Ungers and Superstudio."
