IJAC |International Journal of Architectural Computing
Call for Article Submissions

We invite authors to submit complete and original papers for this peer-reviewed Journal that center on the special issue journal theme ‘Design Economies |The Collaborative Impact’.
‘Design Economies |The Collaborative Impact’

The proliferation of computational models both in practice and in the academy has led many designers and architects to participate in formative and often, entrepreneurial collaborations involving an array disciplines and allied industry partners. The measurable and effective impact of these partnerships has produced both virtual and real prototypes at a variety of scales and contexts. While the initial influence of these outcomes is visible within the global context of the design studio and is evident in the work of leading-edge practitioners, a range of opportunities centered on exploring the seams between ideation, innovation, and invention suggest an emerging design trajectory rooted not only in the moral imperatives of our time, but in developing intersections that undoubtedly will reframe future generations of educators and practitioners.

This call for submissions seeks scholarly research papers and creative projects and works that explore the collaborative context of an engaged design research methodology that has resulted in scenario planning, new products, and innovative processes that continue to shape today’s emerging design economies.


Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers that have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration for another journal or conference. The submissions should be full-length papers (3000 - 5000 words, maximum length 6000 words) complete with illustrations reporting original research or practice.
