Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE

Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE :: Call for Projects — Deadline: January 24, 2009.

In the 1980s architect Bernard Tschumi posed the following question: “If writers could manipulate the structure of stories in the same way as they twist vocabulary and grammar, couldn’t architects do the same, organizing an architectural program in a similarly objective, detached, or imaginative way?” While Tschumi was speculating the foundation for a new type of architectural practice, his thinking can be applied to problematizing our current, informatized cityscapes. Ubiquitous computing, home-brew geospatial analysis and open source culture are rapidly changing our conception and experience of urban space. If “event” could be used as a catalyst in architecture, what paradigms might we employ to recontextualize the city?

Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE is dedicated to exploring urban representation. The issue will serve as a global index of strategies for abstracting, quantifying and documenting urban life. Subjective cartographies, architectural mashups, urban informatics, augmented reality gaming and field recording based work are all examples of research that we are interested in. What is important is that the work is ambitious and innovative.

We are seeking submissions in all formats – audio, video, photographic documentation and text. If you are interested in submitting work to be considered for inclusion in Vague Terrain 13: citySCENE please note the deadlines below and contact the issue curator, Greg J. Smith at greg [at] vagueterrain.net
