STUDIO magazine recently announced their Call for Papers for their forthcoming Issue #5: 'IMPORT><EXPORT,' which is set to examine how these two concepts linked to architecture modify the way to conceive, think and project our cities. This issue aims to explore the unceasing exchange among different realities which has produced a hybrid and heterogeneous urban landscape in which architectural experiences of different sources meet and combine. Structurally organized in different ways of contribution - essays, insights, experiences, images - the issue is meant to be investigated by a multi-disciplinary global perspective in order to define its complexity. The submission process involved two stages with the Stage One deadline on August 31, Stage Two September 30, and publication in November. For more information, please visit here.

Free and open to the public at the ZEZEZE Architecture Gallery in Tel Aviv, the Architactics exhibition by SAYA Design for Change summarizes the approach of SAYA’s mission-based practice. Rather than diving into the details of their specific proposals, it illustrates the channels of influence this practice has defined for design in peace making. SAYA’s pioneering approach termed by its founders as “Resolution Planning” was developed a decade ago to reclaim the architectural responsibility in designing peace. Its goal is to redefine the role and responsibility of architects in conflict resolution, to re-include the city, the people and their joint future space back into the picture. The exhibition will continue to be on display until August 24. More architects' description after the break.
