CALL FOR PAPERS
It is increasingly clear that the work of Madeline Gins and Arakawa, both as architectural theorists and as philosophers of the body in its architectural surrounds is of considerable importance. The journal Interfaces has devoted a double issue to their work. Their latest book, Architectural Body, has been translated into several languages, including French.
The Théorie de la lecture/ Lecture de la théorie seminar wishes to organize an international meeting devoted to Architectural Body: the philosophical, architectural and poetic aspects of the book will be envisaged. The importance of the philosophical project that underlies it will be celebrated. The aim is to enable all the scholars interested in the work of Gins and Arakawa to gather and exchange views. Madeline Gins and Arakawa will attend the conference and will take an active part in the proceedings.
