Presentation

Boundaries is a quarterly international magazine on contemporary architecture, with texts in English and Italian. The first issue, July- September 2011, is centred on the Contemporary Architecture in Africa and the second, October - December 2011, on the Architectures for Emergencies. The aim of the project in Boundaries is to offer a panoramic and critical view of the architectures that today face, in many different ways, the challenges of modernity, and of sustainability intended as a
balance between problems of cultural, environmental, economic and social nature.

Architectures of Peace

The third issue of Boundaries International Architectural Magazine will focus on the meaning of « Architectures of Peace ».

Peace as a process, rather than an aim or a condition, is something difficult to define. Nevertheless, in this new era of local – and global – wars and conflicts it is not just rhetoric to reaffirm the importance of dialog values and peace. Architecture has a deep effect on human beings. Consciousness, places and memories are all deeply involved in the process of creation and re-creation of the environment. Architecture not only provides a shelter but contributes to the organization of the society and reflects our perception of reality. There are many different ways in which the dialogue between architecture and peace could take place: not only through reconstructions, not only through memorials, not only through reconciliation statements.

We encourage authors to explore any aspect of this topic, on which we wish to open a wide interdisciplinary debate. All kinds of approaches to this topic are welcomed, and papers can be case studies oriented, or methodological and/or theoretical in focus.
