PLAT 5.0: License, Call for Submissions

License can bind and it can liberate. A fantasy of disciplinary finitude, a professional architectural license bestows liability and autonomy in equal measure. In an abstract sense, to take license is to disregard established limits, to undermine the very idea of a closed and comprehensive disciplinarity that sustains licensure.

If licentiousness is derived from license, how do architects leverage this polemical condition to balance - or not - responsibility and invention? How does architecture's periphery change when license ceases to be a telos/terminus? What kind of authorities, criteria, and protocols emerge to determine whether an architect is fit to practice?

PLAT Journal invites projects, images, essays, abstracts, and proposals for the 5.0 issue, License. While we welcome work of all shapes and sizes, preference will be given to short essays and graphic content. Longer text submissions will not be reviewed unless accompanied by an abstract of fewer than 250 words. Please send inquiries and submissions to by October 1st, 2015.

Thank you,
