Architecture and Ideas: “Spatial Material” call for papers

Both poetry and architecture hold the capacity to emotionally and surprisingly move us. Poetry has the power to change perceptions, create startling images and reveal hidden creases. Poetry connects bodily rhythms with sonorous pleasure, existential insight and imaginative delight.

Architecture further connects physical movement in space, gravity and material form. Both poetry and architecture reveal in unexpected ways how the world touches us.

The 2007 CCUSA issue of Ai welcomes submissions, projects, built works, articles engaged with the idea of rethinking architecture so that (as in poetry) the unexpected, the unexamined, the unforeseen and the new is revealed.
