A Call for Papers

The International Conference on Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism: Architecture and Community, seeks contributions alongside a new Journal of Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism.

This year, the International Conference on Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism: Architecture and Community will take place online on 13 – 14 November 2020:

The conference is organised by INTBAU Spain, INTBAU Portugal, the Rafael Manzano Prize for New Traditional Architecture and the School of Architecture of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, thanks to the support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust, through a grant from the Chicago Community Trust for the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Fund, and the collaboration of the Fundación Ekaba, the Fundação Serra Henriques, the Escola Superior Gallaecia, the Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio, and the Centro de Investigación de Arquitectura Tradicional (CIAT-UPM).

All the academics and practitioners of traditional building, architecture and urbanism that carry out their activity or are interested in the scope of the topics proposed for this conference may submit proposals to be presented at it, with the final deadline for papers being September 14.

All proposals will go through a selection process and may be accepted for being presented at the conference and/or published in the new Journal of Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism and could also be selected for both.

These proposals may be both original unpublished scientific articles or presentations on other works. The presentations of those contents which have been selected for the conference, both scientific papers or other works, will then be recorded and will be available on the conference website prior to the start of the conference itself.

The live program will focus on a series of panel discussions on the selected topics. These panel discussions will include both the selected presenters and guest speakers and will be dealing with the diverse topics of the conference. The participation of all other attendees will also be encouraged.

Registration will be free but compulsory in order to participate and must be done on the conference website.
