Continuing our commitment to publish the work of emerging design researchers, Interstices: Journal of Architecture & Related Arts invite postgraduate or recently graduated 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 include an explanatory synopsis of 1,500 – 2,000 words.

Project documentation and the synopsis should:

  • Be original and unpublished previously
  • In the case of visual material, include up to ten 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 situating synopsis for the project coauthored by both the project’s creator and the supervisor(s) involved (if applicable). The synopsis should bear the name of the researcher as the primary author and the supervisor (if included) as the secondary author
  • Exhibit, if feasible, a relationship with the journal issue theme – “The Urban Historical”. Note: papers for Issue 22 will be derived from a joint conference held by SAHANZ and the Australasian UHPH Group in November 2022.
