Established in 2009 as the first American academic publication focusing on Design and Adaptive Reuse, the Int|AR Journal and its web presence explore this inherently sustainable practice through multi-faceted investigations and paradigmatic examples.
Focus of Volume 04 | Difficult Memories: Reconciling Meaning
For the subject of Volume 04, we welcome submissions exploring the idea of difficult memories related to adaptive reuse. Buildings, landscapes and materials serve as poignant reminders of our personal and collective heritage and history. Sites become palimpsests upon which layers of memory are recorded through time. They are inherently linked with past events and through this connection become a powerful medium of remembrance. Volume 04 aims to explore this issue of "Difficult Memories" and "Reconciling Meaning" and how negative associations and experiences are translated in building, site or material.
We seek proposals of no more than 250 words and welcome all interpretations and investigations of this topic.
