STUDIO architecture and urbanism magazine is currently accepting proposals for our forthcoming issue TERRIFIC.
Several urban practitioners have defined semantic and urban categories as trying to control possible derivatives existing outside ordinary and everyday practices, transmitted in a terrific and kaleidoscopic variation of commonly used perceptions. Moreover, architecture and urbanism often look toward the investigation of alternative cognitive grids to look to the city beyond traditional cultural mechanisms, giving continuously sense to the of renovation of the discipline. It means looking through what is good and what is bad, what is right and wrong, beautiful or not, conformist or anarchic.
The word terrific went through a transformative process that took a couple of centuries; first a situation of terror, then something extremely huge, now something amazing. STUDIO#11 TERRIFIC wants to explore the meaning, relationship and etymological expansion which have characterized the city project. Which are the dazed, extravagant, curious, unpredictable, attractive and also immoral and narcotic situations that give sense to urban changes? Which micro-situations of the human geography can potentially trigger huge transformation processes, to be considered in a positive or negative way among time? Which semantic changes of concepts are able to represent huge revolutionary trajectories in the architectural and urban practices?
STUDIO #11 TERRIFIC refers to those practices, concept, theories and institutional arrangements which knew radical changes over time, vibrantly reconfiguring the meaning of sense of architectural products and city development.
