  • Call for Papers - Interior Provocations: Interiors without Architecture

    Deadline: October 15th, 2017

    The second annual Pratt Interior Provocations symposium, Interiors without Architecture, seeks papers addressing the broad cultural, historical, and theoretical implications of interiors beyond their conventionally defined architectural boundaries, and not limited by interior design’s traditional associations with decoration, taste, and social status. This conference encourages provocative and boundary-expanding proposals from design practitioners, historians, and theorists addressing, for example, the implications of interior design expertise applied to prefabricated, reused enclosures not originally intended for human occupation; interiors composed by natural geography; interior environments created for literature, film, stage and virtual reality; interiors constructed within external urban surroundings; mobile interiors, inhabitable art; infrastructural interiors; interior landscapes; adaptive reuse and interiors; and interiors on and for display, including period rooms, model rooms, dioramas, and store display windows.
     
    This symposium celebrates the publication of Interiors Beyond Architecture (Routledge 2018), co-edited by Deborah Schneiderman (Pratt Institute) and Amy Campos (California College of the Arts) as well as of Architectures of Display: Department Stores and Modern Retail (Routledge 2018), co-edited by Anca I. Lasc (Pratt Institute), Patricia Lara-Betancourt (The Modern Interiors Research Centre, Kingston University, London, UK), and Margaret Maile Petty (Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia).

    Please submit abstracts with original, unpublished research of no more than 300 words and a 2-page cv to interiorprovocations@gmail.com by October 15, 2017.

  • KSU | Year of India - Conference

    Dates: March 15-17 2018

    India, a land of ancient wisdom and cultural world heritage, is home to the world’s first cities. In the last twenty years it has experienced unprecedented growth, development, and change, altering its physical, cultural, and social landscape with dramatic effect. Today, its cities embody a paradoxical mix of globalization, modernity, and advanced technology with regionalism, tradition, and religion, juxtaposed with extreme poverty and inequality. Sustainability, in all its facets has emerged as a key problem in India’s development story. Urbanization is not an independent variable of development, but an integral part and product of the development process itself. Therefore, there is a need to understand urban issues as part of a larger development process affecting both rural and urban communities and livelihoods, employing historical and contemporary perspectives (with regional and global implications). Building off research in the fields of Sociology, Biology, and Architecture, the conference will examine contemporary urban growth in India and its effects on the everyday ecologies of its people. Our goal is a more holistic understanding of India’s urban ecologies, their interdependence, and the need for more sustainable strategies for urbanization. India’s cities can provide applicable lessons to the more global concerns of urbanization around the world. 

    Cost: Registration Fee $200

  • Designing Healthy, 10-Minute Neighborhoods Competition

    Deadline: October 31st, 2017
    55th International Making Cities Livable Conference

    The 2018 IMCL Design Competition jury will consider all submissions that speak to Designing Healthy 10-Minute Neighborhoods. Projects that emphasize Community, Health, Sustainability, and Equity are actively sought, and will be given particular consideration.
    Submitted projects do not have to be complete plans for a new urban neighborhood.
    Projects might focus, for example, on the transformation of a mall into a mixed-use neighborhood center; or a plan to restructure an existing neighborhood into a “complete” neighborhood through infill. Projects might focus on one element that is needed to bring about a healthy neighborhood, such as walkable, bikeable streets, or a neighborhood park; or they may focus on a project that creates a community gathering place, etc.
    In all projects, the jury will be looking for evidence that the project enhances its context, and contributes to Community, Health, Sustainability, and Equity at the neighborhood level.

    For more details and to submit a proposal, please see:
