The symposium deals with forms, features and interactions of particular processes in research-related design and design-related ways of research in architecture, urban design and landscape architecture.

Which different kind of processes and process characteristics shape the dynamics of design and research against the background of various bodies of knowledge and different influences which are not always fully tangible? How do systematizing operations and creative acts intermingle? Which kind of design options and which kind of scientific possibilities and artefacts come to the fore? How are specific forms of knowledge and their interactions being generated, evaluated and transformed, and in which ways can they be understood and communicated as examples for the relevance of high quality design of the human living environment?

These questions are equally addressed to designers of architecture and landscape, to artistic actors and theorists, as well as PhD students and post docs of both disciplines.

The the call for papers ends February 21st, 2018.
