"Conditions Issue: The Politics of Architectural Quality" Call for Submissions

The debate on what constitutes quality in architecture is as old as architecture itself. In architecture the notion of quality can be approached on several levels. Building-technical quality standards are becoming more and more dominant, aiming mostly at avoiding mistakes. When it comes to the quality of the architecture per se, there is less agreement than ever before. How can such a contested notion become the main goal in national architecture politics?

They are looking for speculative, provocative texts as well as projects exploring the politics of architectural quality. Send your abstracts to by the 21st of June. Deadline for final submissions is the 2nd of August. For more information, go to Conditions official website. Seen at Bustler.
