Call for Submissions: FM Journal Issue 8

FM8 is concerned with the meaning of architecture and the city. The dinosaurs of capitalism have become the senescence of urbanism. If the modernist project of carte blanche is over, how do we engage the city’s filthy state without a clean slate?

Contemporary architectural discourse has sidelined the master plan. What if instead of a master-planning master architect, we assume the role of a jester-planning joker architect?

Vacancy inevitably alters physical boundaries unexpectedly; how can this effect demanding forces to encode spaces? What ways can sudden intelligence infiltrate the city against the prevailing myths of urbanism?

The street is a potential space for urban transformation and radical change in a city—reversing figure and ground, subtracting built matter, and stratifying the city into bands of interaction. Dense urban context presents the challenge of how to deal with existing “masterpieces.”

More than a matter of unit distribution, the problem of housing is uniquely urban. How can new housing typologies exist in dialog with the urban landscape?

Architects are criticized for taking agency over the intangible concept of human scale. How can this disobedience be thought of both modestly and provocatively?
