Call for papers - The architectonics of virtual spaces

Architecture and urbanism in video games and virtual reality

Round table, Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin
Einsiedeln, Switzerland
9.6.2018, 9-17:30

We would like to address these questions in a lively discussion with experts from different fields, most of whom hold a degree in architecture. Besides eight invited speakers, there are two more positions open to individuals with different disciplinary backgrounds – game theory, philosophy, architecture, history of technology, etc. – interested in these questions and ideally with a background in architecture. These will be selected via an open call for papers. 

Interested researchers should apply by sending a short abstract of max. 500 words in PDF format and a short CV to: architektonikdesvirtuellen@zhaw.ch at the latest by Sunday, 4 March 2018. Travel expenses will be compensated.

 

Organization:

Andri Gerber, Institute Urban Landscape, ZHAW Winterthur, in collaboration with Werner Oechslin, Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin. The conference will be in English.
