Call for writers and projects: URBAN SPACE (deadline 1 November)

We’re looking for articles and projects for issue 1/2022. The theme for the issue is “Urban Space”.

Call for writers

The articles should discuss current topics related to urban space and urban development from i.e. following viewpoints – yet are not limited to these questions:

  • What does ecologically and culturally sustainable development mean in city centres, suburbs or smaller settlements?
  • What kind of environment have ideals of high and efficient urban form produced in different parts of Finland?
  • How can we combine densification and cultural values in urban areas?
  • What kind of meaning do details have in urban environment?

The proposals should be sent to ark@safa.fi by 1 November. Proposals should include an approximately 1/2 page summary of the intended main points and viewpoint. We will notify the writers as soon as possible. The final articles should be written during November and December.

Call for projects

We’re also looking for topical urban design and planning projects to be featured in the issue – ranging from unbuilt reference plans to urban space renewals and large scale visions. However, we will not feature projects previously published in the publications of the Association of Finnish Architects SAFA. Proposals, including some images and a short written description, should be sent to ark@safa.fi by 15 November. We will ask for publishing quality material later on.
