Contribute to Architecture and Culture

Architecture & Culture is concerned with the relationship of culture to architecture – with the culture that surrounds architecture, and the way architecture embodies and articulates culture. Culture may be understood broadly, as the practices of a people or society, or more specifically, as the habits of architecture as a discipline. We are interested in questioning architecture’s disciplinary boundaries, and investigating closely its reliance on other disciplines, other cultures.

Architecture and Culture is a critical platform to rethink architectural research in relation to a wider scope of the humanities. The journal's thematic issues for example, on filmmaking and visual research, expand and interrogate the range, methods and output of research writing and making. ‘Thinking through architecture’ becomes methodologically significant, and this is inflected in the modes of writing, making, and drawing, featured in the journal. Architecture and Culture is, at once, provocative and thoughtful.’

We encourage submissions from all those interested in architecture’s cultures, whether practitioners, emerging or established scholars, or collaborative researchers. We welcome contributions those studying architecture from within its disciplinary orbit, as well as those observing it from other viewpoints. The work that we publish will be exploratory in its approach, compelling to read, and rigorous in its research and execution. It should raise challenging questions in the pursuit of new understandings.

Submissions may be predominantly visual – for instance, an essay based on images, with short, critical supporting text – or they may be predominantly verbal, using images for illustration. They may be structured as expository arguments or essays, or presented in alternative forms, such as poems, short stories, or other compositions. They may be linked to digital sound recordings, videos or other image files. Whatever their form, they will be engaging and coherent.

Architecture and Culture, the international award winning, peer-reviewed journal of the Architectural Humanities Research Association, investigates the relationship between architecture and the culture that shapes and is shaped by it.
