Call for Creative Design Research Projects

Continuing our commitment to publish the work of emerging and established designers, Interstices: Journal of Architecture and Related Arts invites postgraduate researchers in architecture and related art and design fields to submit projects for the journal’s peer-reviewed, creative design research section.

Projects should be complete at the time of submission and are to include a design synopsis of 1500 words.

Project documentation and the synopsis should meet the following criteria:

  • Be original and unpublished previously
  • In the case of visual material, include no more than six indicative views of the proposal
  • In the case of moving image, animated sequences, or audio works, not exceed four minutes duration
  • Include a scholarly and critically contextualising synopsis for the project coauthored by both the project’s creator and the supervisor(s) involved. The synopsis should bear the name of the researcher as the primary author and the supervisor as the secondary author.
  • Exhibit where feasible a relationship with a particular journal issue thematic.

Submissions will be considered for inclusion across the two forthcoming journal issues planned for publication in 2018: Issue 18, The Arts of Spinoza + Pacific Spinoza; Issue 19, Surface/Pattern.

Please submit full project documentation for the Interstices 18 & 19 journal issues to Dr Andrew Douglas (adouglas@aut.ac.nz) by 4 September 2017.

All submission will be blind refereed by an invited panel.
